Tee’ing up for Type 1 Diabetes

By Cass Jacoby, RCS Reporter.  

Charity golf classic funds research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. 

Dawn Holsinger, a partner at Delta Rep Group that represents Hunter Panels in Florida is a mom of two children with type 1 diabetes. Each year Dawn hosts a golf tournament benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).  

JDRF is leading the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D) by funding research, advocating for policies that accelerate access to new therapies, and providing a support network for millions of people around the world impacted by T1D. 

In type 1 diabetes (which used to be called juvenile-onset or insulin-dependent diabetes), the body completely stops making insulin. Type 1 diabetes is a 24/7 disease that requires constant management. People with T1D continuously and carefully balance insulin intake with eating, exercise and other activities. They also measure blood-sugar levels through finger pricks, ideally at least six times a day, or by wearing a continuous glucose monitor. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life threatening. 

This year, Hunter Panels OEM National Manager, Ed Krusec who also has a type 1 diabetic son, went the extra mile, donating an entire truck of Hunter Panels H-Shield Polyiso Roof Insulation to auction at the event. The proceeds of $13,000 from the auction were donated directly to JDRF.  

The JD Hasselbach Charity Golf Classic offered a day on the greens, an exciting silent auction, awards and more – all while helping raise critical funds for life changing type 1 diabetes research. The 13th annual tournament for charity helped bring us a step closer to a T1D free world.
