“I’m looking forward to coming to NY and hosting my All-Star Celebrity Bowling Event which will benefit JDRF,” said Trent Tucker. “With diabetes on the rise affecting both children and adults, more people inflicted with the disease are facing life threatening challenges. With the help of all the generous celebrities, supporters and participants, we are hoping to Strike Out Type One.”
“JDRF is thrilled to be the beneficiary of the Trent Tucker All-Star Celebrity Bowling Event,” said chapter executive director, Kristin DiFoglio. “In the United States more than 3 million children and adults diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) struggle with this life threatening disease, and the numbers are growing. They face a lifetime of potentially fatal complications from this disease, a disease that never sleeps. Thanks to the generosity of people like Tucker and all those expected to participate in this event, JDRF leads the world in funding type 1 diabetes research. We are confident that together, we will reach our goal and ultimately Turn Type One into Type None.”
