N/Warren Town and County News Norwalk School Raises $2,400 for Juvefiile Diabetes The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's (JDRF) Walk to Cure Dia- betes was held Monday, May 12, at the fairgrounds in Des Moines. This fundraiser is held annually for TID (Type I Diabetes) research. Each year, over 13,000 children are diag' nosed in the United States with TID-formerly known as juvenile diabetes. This is equivalent to about 35 chil- dren diagnosed each and every day! Diabetes is one of the most costly chronic childhood diseases and something they will never outgrow. TlI9 causes life- long dependence on in- jected or pumped insulin, multiple blood sample testing throughout the day to monitor blood sugar levels and carries the con- stant threat of devastating complications. In support of JDRF, Lakewood Elementary pitched in to raise money! Students participated by having each classroom col- lect coins the past few weeks. They displayed amazing generosity going above and beyond bring- ing in allowances and birthday money to donate to the cause! Two class- rooms collected over $300. Lakewood also had "Hat Day" where-students paid $1 to wear a hat for the day. Teachers and staff made their donations by paying money to wear jeans for a day or two during the week. All efforts coinbined raised a total of $2,419.07. This money was divided among the three Lake- wood students with TID and donated to JDRF. LIBRARY EVENTS Sunday, May 25 SUMMER SCHEDULE BEGINS.
