JDRF Awareness Campaign at Burlington Elementary School

Last semester first grade students at Burlington Elementary learned about juvenile diabetes. Their teacher, Mrs. Bross shared her experiences with her three children have had with diabetes.

Mrs. Bross’ daughter came to speak to the student and shared what it is like to have diabetes. She explained how doctors and nutritionists work to help her and others with diabetes to regulate sugar levels in their blood.

Students created posters to encourage others to support the JDRF. They counted out the tags students received if they donated and helped to count the money.

Students raised $560 to benefit the local chapter of The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
