‘Walk’ aims to turn diabetes trend

By the year 2020 new cases of type 1 diabetes in children younger than five are expected to double if current trends continue. Saturday’s local Walk to Cure Diabetes will hopefully help turn that trend in another direction. The public is invited to participate and the walk starts at 10 a.m. at Willow Park in Logan. Registration starts at 9 a.m. The Walk to Cure Diabetes is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s largest fundraising program. Donations received through Saturday’s event will go toward funding research that will pave the road to a cure.
