Why is it important to give back and get involved?
Many members were once campers at Camp Kudzu, and many of us now attend Camp as volunteers. Many of us are also involved with JDRF in various capacities.
But these two great causes we care about are only the tip of the iceberg.
A lot of us are involved in other aspects of the Diabetes community, not just Camp and JDRF; shadowing, volunteering, blogs, CDN, ADA, education, speaking, and so much more. We are also involved in areas that are not related to Diabetes.
As an organization, we find it very important to be involved and give back because many of us have benefitted from various organizations. We also enjoy it!

Mindy’s favorite part about camp is giving back to the place that she grew up with, and of course Arts and Crafts (TIE-DYE) . She hopes that future campers will get what she got of camp; family, inspiration, lifelong friends, and so much more.
If you are looking for a wonderful volunteer opportunity, keep Camp Kudzu in mind for this summer! Visit the link above the photo for more details!
JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes (One Walk)
When: October 25 at 1PM
Where: Sandy Creek Park, Athens, GA
“The JDRF Walk is an impactful way to raise money for critically needed type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and show your support for the millions of people affected by this serious disease. (JDRF Website).”
Visit the link above if you would like to donate to JDRF or join the Dawgs for Diabetes Team! Any donation makes a difference! Invite your friends and family to the walk and to donate as well.
Danielle, former Vice President (bottom left),- Her favorite part about the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes (becoming the JDRF One Walk) was seeing so much community involvement. Outside of her sister, she didn’t know much about the disease, so to be around the “diabetic” family and seeing how these kids are able to cope with a chronic disease so young was an amazing experience.
We are so excited to launch our First Newsletter. Enjoy. We apologize for the delay. We’d love to hear what you think!

We hope to get away from google docs in the future as we become more comfortable with the process.
Thanks- From all of us at D4D
