Year five brings changes to our efforts to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Shreveport Diabetes Golf has expanded into other sporting events and has a new corporate name, SHREVEPORT DIABETES SPORTS, INC. The Fifth Annual Golf Classic will be held on May 18, 2015. The Second Annual Tennis Classic will be held on May 15 - 17, both at East Ridge Country Club. The Second Annual Max Abernathy 5K Run was held on April 19th. This year's golf tournament limit of 32 teams has almost been reached, so hurry and get your entry in.
Last year's events allowed us to write a check for $78,000.00 to the JDRF, bringing the corporation's total donation to $270,000.00 in our first four years. In addition, hundreds more people are now aware of Type 1 diabetes and its effect on the children and adults with the disease.
Our 2014 Golf Classic tournament was again presented by Kyle and Renee' Sawyer, together with 40 other large sponsors, dozens of tee sign sponsors and donors. The board of directors of SDS, Inc. would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers and the staff and management of East Ridge, without whom these events would not be possible.
If you or a friend or family member has been affected by diabetes, you can help by cilcking the Donate button on the left. You can pay with Pay Pal, Visa, Master Card, Anerican Express or Discover or send a check to the P. O. Box listed below left. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
We will continue to strive toward our ultimate goal of turning Type 1 into TYPE NONE!
