Thank you for
joining us for this special event designed to benefit
the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the
University of Michigan Comprehensive Diabetes Center
the video recap of the great event here!
Rich, Jeff, and Joe Hewlett
Swing to Cure Diabetes was founded by former University of Michigan football player and Varnum attorney
and his wife, Chris. The couple began raising money and
awareness for juvenile diabetes research after their son,
Jeffrey, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 20 years ago.
The annual golf outing is attended by many of Rich's Wolverine teammates and coaches, including U of M head coaches
Jim Harbaugh, Gary Moeller and Lloyd Carr.
| A Few Words From Jeffrey...
|Ever since I was 4 years old, I have had diabetes. I donít remember what life was like without diabetes. I wake up every day and the first thing I do is poke my finger. Then after that, I take a shot to cover everything I have eaten. This is the routine I do before every meal, everyday. Even during school, I leave class 5 minutes early to test and give myself a shot before lunch. Diabetes has never slowed me down.
I just want to let you know how much I appreciate your help. I enjoy playing golf and am very excited about the Swing to Cure Diabetes golf outing. I hope to see you there!
