Walkers invited to join Haldin team
The Haldin family of New Milford will once again participate in the JDRF One Walk.
The family-friendly event welcomes walkers, volunteers and sponsors to raise money to make living with T1D safer and healthier, until it is no longer a threat.
JDRF's mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
Phair Haldin, a freshman in college, created the H2T1 Team (Haldin Squared with Type One) two years ago when her brother, Owen, now an eighth-grader, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes.
She was diagnosed with it in 2013.
The children’s mother, Trish, is organizing the team that will participate in the Nov. 4 walk at Wilton High School.
The one-mile walk will take place at the Zeoli Fieldhouse, 395 Danbury Road, Wilton.
Check in will be at 9 a.m., with the walk to start at 10 a.m.
The team is seeking walkers.
