BENEFITING: CHOC FOUNDATION
For the last 6 years I have worked with my work's philanthropic arm called Yamaha Cares to raise money to find a cure for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. My daughter Katrina was diagnosed with this Type 1 nine years ago and this is a small part that we can do to help Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). The fund raising specifically goes to their TrialNet program which is a research arm trying to find a cure and cause of Type 1. We have raised over $60,000 in the last six years using the SC Half Marathon as the event used to get people involved. KatrinaKures is a name we use because of my daughters tie in to the race, but 100% of the proceeds go to CHOC TrialNet program.
