Annual Downhill for Diabetes Ski and Snowboard Event at Killington

Letter to the Editor

— My seven-year-old daughter, Ashley, is a Type 1 Diabetic. My husband and I started a non-profit charity organization, Donations for Diabetes, to raise money to help find a cure for this disease. We have held a downhill ski/board event for the past two years and it has been a huge success.

Last year alone, we rose over $14,500, and we would like to top that this year! I hope you will help us with this effort.

Our Third Annual Downhill for Diabetes Ski and Snowboard Event will be on Sunday, February 24th, 2013 at Pico Mountain Resort in Killington.

Participants will raise money to ski or snowboard, similar to a donation walk, just Vermont style. The purpose of this event is to raise money to continue funding research and ultimately come up with a cure for this disease.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be donated to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

The more people that know about it, the more money we can raise for this great cause. If you have any questions or need more information, please www.donationsfordiabetes.org

I hope you will help us out with this wonderful cause.
