2013 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

2013 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

There is more to be being the 2013 Inver Grove Heights Princess than a crown, the gloves, and the dress.  It is also about giving back to our community. On Saturday, February 23, I joined thousands of people from all over the Twin Cities area at the Mall Of America (including Kassi Giles [2013 Miss Inver Grove Heights] and her family) for the 2013 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. There is nothing like the feeling of knowing that you are doing more than just walking to find a cure, but the look on the kids’ faces when they see a Princess walking to help them – priceless. I had a lot of fun with Kassi and her family, who were walking for her cousin Alex.  He has type 1 diabetes.  Doing this walk was a great experience and helping to find a cure for diabetes was icing on the cake.  I had a wonderful time walking around the mall for this cause and hope to do this walk again in the near future.
