The total direct and indirect cost estimated of diagnosed diabetes in America is over $245 Billion per year. Our goal is to draw close awareness to the risk factors and provide this amazing venue platform for the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the Juvenile Diabetes (JDRF) and other local agencies to collectively come together to speak out and offer the necessary tools and information to support our community and change the world!
Your generous contribution will define the community outreach goals of educating those who have been diagnosed with diabetes with life changing information and on hand necessities to improve their health and wellness. The benefits of your contribution will provide the entertainment and production needs to enlighten our approx. 5000 - 7500 attendees with valuable preventative tools to be aware of how to avoid an onset of diabetes. There is hope for those who have diabetes. They are diagnosed but not defeated! This major epic event will have Guest Speakers and Agencies with tents to consult with individuals who participate.
