Dear Editor of the Washington County Insider,
With the coming the Fall and changing of the leaves to beautiful colors also comes the annual West Bend Walk for Diabetes.
The 2nd annual Walk was held this year on October 15 at the Ridge Run Park from 9-12 noon. We had a great turn out of around 50 walkers and volunteers.
Two young gentlemen, Sam and Luke, received a medal from the ADA.
Members of Boy Scout Troop 780 served as a the trail masters and they lined the trail with red American Diabetes Walk balloons to show the way.
The event raised around $2,400 for diabetes research and was a great success. Next year will be even better.
David Reed, West Bend.
