Type 1 Diabetes is a sometimes fatal disease of the autoimmune system that unsuspectingly takes hold of a person's life, utterly changing it forever. From daily blood sugar testing to insulin injections and the projection of other potentially severe health problems -- Type 1 Diabetes is a disease that hurts many throughout the World and two very special members of the JES team.
Erica Lackey and Ben Waltz have become the inspiration to the JES team for some time now as they both fight their own battle against this disease. We believe in a cure and we support them in their fight, which is why the JES team participated in a walk to cure Diabetes on October 23, 2010 to support Erica, the daughter of JES Marketing VP, Eric Lackey; and Ben Waltz, the son of JES owners, Stella and Jesse Waltz.
The walk was conducted by the Tidewater Chapter, the Virginia Beach chapter, of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which is the world's leading researcher for the cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
The Walk to Cure Diabetes is actually the organization's largest event and ranks as one of the fastest growing fundraisers in the world.
We are so proud of Erica and Ben and are proud to support the efforts of the Tidewater Chapter. We believe in a cure.
As always, there's a lot of love and support within our team, and we extend the same genuine care to our customers in need of crawl space repair in Virginia. Be sure to contact us with any of your questions -- we can help!
