Lighting the night to fight diabetes

Posted:

Going by Memorial Park Friday evening, you might have noticed it all lit up. Well, it was for a good cause.      

It's the fourth year of Reflections -"Light the Night to Fight Diabetes." Organizers say the purpose is to bring awareness to the disease and also raise money to send newly diagnosed kids to diabetes camp.  

Also, there are bags with glow sticks next to them that will be lit up. Each light has special significance.      

"There's a donation given to represent either in memorial of or in honor of someone with diabetes. That's what we want to do because diabetes affects so many people," said Beth-Anne Ferley, Reflections Co-Chair.

"I think diabetes should be more know to people because it's becoming such a well known disease and raising money is really good for our cause," said Leah Lowenberg, Type 1 Diabetic.

Money raised from the event will help send kids to the Diabetes Incorporated "Kamp for Kids" in Custer. The camp runs August 9th through the 11th.
