Sweet Run - 5K Run & 3K Fun Walk
The "Sweet Run" 5K run and 3K fun walk to celebrate Diabetes Awareness Month was a success.
The event was a family friendly event for runners and non-runners. It included a timed 5K Run and a 3K fun walk for kids and adults. The profits will go to support South Texas Juvenile Diabetes Association which is a non-profit organization dedicated to educate, support and promote activities for children with diabetes in the Rio Grande Valley.
We want to thank our sponsors for making this event possible and to the community for showing their overwhelming support toward our cause!
South Texas Juvenile Diabetes Association is pleased to announce that we have received our official letter of approval from the Internal Revenue Service giving us 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable status.
We started our adventure of becoming a charitable organization in October 2011 with the help of a great group of volunteers who had the same vision for diabetic children. They are a special group of individuals who live everyday with challenges unique to them. This organization was started by parents of diabetic children as a support system and advocacy group that helps both diabetic children and their families.
We finally received our approval letter complete with our 501(c)(3) exemption number. It has been a long time coming but I am sure all the hard work will pay off in the near future.
All proceeds from our events and activities benefit diabetic children of the Rio Grande Valley.
