Twenhofel Middle School & JDRF

At the beginning of this school year, Nikki's homeroom teacher sent out an e-mail to parents to get some ideas on community service projects. I, of course, tossed back a quick reply that JDRF would be a great project. Not much more was said until a few months ago. That's when Nikki's teacher contacted me once again to say that she had chosen JDRF as the school's community service project and would I be willing to help out (YES!!). We were excited to say the least. I've spoken before about how great this middle school, but they stepped it up even more for this walk. We decided to make the fundraising time period last about 2 weeks - we kicked it off with this video (click and watch it if you can, it's a good one!) then the middle school kids were off and running. They raised about $3,000! I want to send a special thank you to Sharon Cross and Cheryl Jones for their willingness to bring T1 awareness to TMS and for their enthusiam and love for the kids; you rock!!
