The ONE event was started last year by several families in the Columbia area to find a way to DO SOMETHING for our kids with type 1 diabetes. JDRF used to sponsor a walk in this area each year but since our community is not considered large enough they stopped. When we inquired – they asked us to host a walk on our own. We thought a party would be more fun! So, in 2016 several families of type 1 diabetic kids planned a family friendly party on the lawn of Logboat Brewing Co. … hoping 150 friends would show up in support of type 1 diabetes. We were blessed to have 450 people in attendance at the event and raise $25,000 to benefit the research that JDRF is doing to find a cure for our kids with type 1 diabetes.
