JDRF Awards


Last night was the JDRF Awards Ceremony. It was a beautiful set up, once again! This year, we had my Mom & Brian there along with Kacey's lifelong friend, Hunter and my friend, Jill and her 3 kids. It was nice to have enough people there to fill one of those huge 10 seater tables (plus a chair)!

Our team raised a total amount of $3059.00!!!

Kacey raised a total of $2698.00!!!

We're so thankful to everyone that donated and were so generous with their time to help us raise this money. We couldn't have done it without you!

Kacey received 3 awards. She got the GOLD level award for teams that raise $2500-$5000. She also got the Golden Sneaker Award for raising over $1000 on her own. And.....we won the t-shirt contest!!! They gave her the framed picture in the above pic I took. It was AWESOME!! They matted the picture so we could have everyone from her team sign the mat. How cool is that?!?!

I'd like to take this moment to thank everyone at JDRF for all their hard work putting this event together. We are every thankful for our awards and the gorgeous banquet you provided for us.

I'll post all the pics up on Facebook when I get a chance :)

That is so neat! I have never made it to an awards dinner...they have always had to send my awards to me. If I kick up the heat next year and raise what I want to...i'm totally going!
