Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
American Diabetes Wholesale has announced that they will be a major sponsor for the ‘Downhill For Diabetes’ fundraiser for the third year in a row. 2014’s event will be hosted at Pico Mountain Resort, in Killington, Vermont, and will take place on February 9, 2014. Starting at 8AM, the full-day event will include skiing and snowboarding events with the goal of raising money for diabetes research.
Sharing the same theme as a charity walk or run, the skiers and snowboarders participating in the event will seek donations from businesses, family, and friends for their efforts. To take part in the event, all participants will have to register online prior to the event in order to obtain their discount or free lift tickets and be guaranteed event merchandise. One hundred percent of the proceeds collected during the event will go directly towards researching a cure for diabetes.
‘Downhill For Diabetes’ is a fantastic event and a great way to raise public awareness and funds for Type 1 diabetes research. We are thrilled to be a major sponsor for this event and we look forward to seeing ‘Donations for Diabetes’ surpass their 2013 fundraising level’, says Chris Maguire, Vice-President and co-founder of American Diabetes Wholesale.
The event is being hosted by Donations for Diabetes, a non-profit organization based in Vermont. The 2014 event is the fourth annual ‘Downhill For Diabetes’ fundraiser and their goal is to surpass the 2013 donation total of $20,000.00.
"ADW has been a gracious and generous sponsor of our event for three years in a row! Every amount donated makes us that much closer to helping our daughter and all the other people who suffer from diabetes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart," says Lynn Pratt, co-founder of Donation for Diabetes.
