STATEN ISLAND, NY

Friends and Family came together to celebrate Michael Ameno at Hoops for Hope! Michael was diagnosed in March of 2014 and started playing basketball on a new team that Sept.  His friend Zack Tosic was always amazed at how Michael would manage his condition by checking his blood sugar and drinking his juice when he felt low.  He would tell his mom how brave his friend was and he always wanted to do something to honor him.  When Zack’s mom Michele became involved with the Kiwanis organization he knew he wanted to put together an event for Michael.  His teammates and friends and family came together for this special day.  The children coached the adults in a friendly basketball game. There was also open play time for all and a contest for the kids who came out.  In a few short hours, we were able to have fun, raise funds and most of all raise awareness.

CHAPEL HILL, NC

July 2016 — “After a long week of mind-numbing end of grade testing, Eliza and Allegra held a charity lemonade stand Friday afternoon.  These awesome girls both happen to have sisters with Type 1 and are passionate about finding a cure for them and everyone else.  They danced, they sang, Eliza’s brother Max even learned sign spinning, enabling them to earn $50 for Beyond Type 1.  The best part was listening to these very informed kids teach others about Type 1. P.S. They had the great idea of offering sugar-free lemonade for sale too!” Anne Miller
