Tackle Diabetes, Save Lives
Touchdown for Diabetes 2014Thursday, October 2, 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m.
In southwest Michigan alone, about 66,000 people are living with diabetes.* While there’s no cure for this disease, the condition can be effectively managed.
To help underinsured diabetics tackle their disease for a longer life, Cole Community Solutions, Inc. sponsors an exclusive fundraiser called Touchdown for Diabetes. Since 1996 Cole Century Buick-Cadillac-GMC Truck has transformed its dealership into a huge tailgate party that allows guests to socialize, eat, browse silent auction items and enjoy entertainment – all in support of diabetes patient care.
Touchdown for Diabetes 2013 was a huge success, with over $103,000 raised to provide diabetes care for the uninsured in the Greater Kalamazoo Area! Proceeds totaling 1.4 million dollars have been raised for diabetes care by Cole Century and Cole Community Solutions since the inaugural event.
Remember, every penny raised from Touchdown for Diabetes stays in Kalamazoo County.
