My wonderful JDRF volunteers and I have been cranking away at planning the walk. We are working on everything from vendor and food tents, to bounce houses for the kids, signs, balloons, tables, chairs, golf carts, stage and sound equipment, check-in and registration, etc etc. It’s been a lot of fun and it feels good to have such an overwhelming support. We are still looking for volunteers, so if you are interested, please send me an e-mail to jessica [at] usipp [dot] net. (Obviously the e-mail is written out in code like that to avoid those spammy robots who keep hitting my blog).
In addition to the numerous walk teams that have already registered, we also have several sponsors and vendors that will be attending our walk as table vendors loaded with diabetes related information. Sponsors like Insulet Omnipod, Dexcom CGMS, Medtronic, certified diabetes educators, and several more still in the works. This is going to be an exciting event at Jordan Valley/Founders Park in downtown Springfield, so don’t miss out!
