“We’re so very grateful to all of our supporters. At our inaugural golf and tennis event last year, we raised over $60,000 in support of type 1 diabetes research and to assist those living with the disease,” said Paul Foti, co-founder of Type One. “We hope to match or exceed that amount this year. In addition to support for type 1 diabetes research, Type One helps provide scholarships to local children with type 1 diabetes to attend type 1 diabetes camp, as well as help provide qualifying recipients with assistance for diabetes management and treatment.”
