November is Diabetes Awareness Month and Hamilton Building Supply has partnered with JDRF to raise funds to fight for a cure for Juvenile/Type 1 Diabetes. In 2022, this campaign raised $33,867 for the JDRF and this year, we're going for $50,000! All funds raised this November will be matched dollar for dollar by Hamilton Building Supply!
We'll also be celebrating our big month with a party for friends, family, customers, coworkers and ESPECIALLY fellow T1D's! Be sure to join us on Thursday, November 30th from 6pm-9pm at Killarney's Publick House in Hamilton, NJ to celebrate our fundraiser for Type 1 Diabetes awareness!
As a valued customer, partner and friend of Hamilton Building Supply, we ask you to help us bring greater awareness to Type 1 Diabetes we build for a cure! Your donation to our fundraiser is truly appreciated and will be matched dollar for dollar by Hamilton Building Supply!
Type 1 Diabetes, better known as T1D, is a chronic form of Diabetes that makes your pancreas incapable of producing the insulin your body needs to turn sugar into energy. Without insulin, your blood sugar rises, forcing your body into ketoacidosis and you will get seriously ill or die. Unfortunately, T1D cannot be treated or cured by diet and exercise and these people rely on daily doses of insulin and around-the-clock blood sugar monitoring to stay healthy.
T1D is a very rare form of Diabetes, where only about 1 in 300 people have the disease and only about 5% of all Diabetics are Type 1 (about 95% of Diabetics are Type 2). About 200,000 children under the age of 18 suffer from T1D.
