It's time again for the fun holiday celebration at the North I-25 Business Association. This year we honor the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. North I-25 member Miriam Freeman will share her story and how JDRF works to find a cure for diabetes
The gift basket silent auction is an ever-popular feature of the holiday meeting. Be ready to buy your tickets at the meeting. The baskets always contain a delightful selection of goodies and useful items, most featuring New Mexico themes and products. And everyone who buys a ticket will be a winner!
- 1 Ticket for $10
- 3 Tickets for 20$
- 10 Tickets for 50$
The North I-25 Business Association will match all silent auctions proceeds, all for the benefit of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, so please plan to be generous.
Miriam Freeman is the board president of JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). She has served as JDRF's One Night Gala Chair for the past two years, and under her guidance, this event achieved its most success to date in terms of the number of attendees and in the amount of funds raised to cure T1D. She is passionate about finding a cure for diabetes. She says, "I can only imagine a day when families don't have to live in fear that their children will be diagnosed with diabetes". Her dad is type 1 and has lived with it for 58 years. She was diagnosed at the age of 10. She is a mother of 2 young children. She supports JDRF in all their efforts in hopes that one day there is a cure for diabetes.
