As some of you may or may not know, Mrs Streak has type 1 diabetes. It will be 16 years this year that she has had this devastating disease. Diabetes is a called the silent killer, yet more than 23 million children and adults suffer from this deadly disease. There is no known cure for Diabetes, but with your support we can fund programs that will provide education on fitness, nutrition and information about disease prevention. On Saturday May 8th our friend Eleanor Moyer from the Eternal Embrace Hope Foundation is putting together a “BEAT DIABETES BENEFIT“, happening from Noon – 7pm in Dover, NH. This is an ALL AGES event and tix are only $10. A potion of the proceeds will go to Camp Care Free,a camp for diabetic children. This is going to be a really fun event! Not only will Streak be playing, but Mrs Streak is going to be a key speaker as well as vending her photography. I hope ALL of you can join us on this day, but if not you can STILL donate by purchasing a ticket. Or you can donate via the Paypal button below. Every little bit helps!
Local New England Bands Eternal Embrace, Electric Mummy, Mortuus Ortus, Absynthe, Counted Shadows and Streak will perform and raise money for Diabetes awareness. A portion of the proceeds will be given to Camp Care Free, an American Diabetes Association supported Summer camp for children with Diabetes that empowers the children to build friendships, have fun, create independence and enjoy the Summer while learning to manage their illnesses.
Matt Brown from Penacook Martial Arts will represent the Defeat Diabetes Foundation by providing Martial Arts presentations to raise awareness about how the ancient practice of Martial Arts can help people suffering from Diabetes.
Angela Dimock, a photographer and wife of Chris Dimock of the band Streak, will be speaking of her experiences growing up with Diabetes. Local Author, Katherine Marple, will be on site to sign her recent book about her battle with Diabetes.
