The Lake County Juvenile Diabetes Walk Family is a 501-3c non-profit organization that raises money to help people suffering from diabetes. Last year our team rose over $8,000 for this great cause! This year our goal is to raise $15,000 for Diabetes care. We cannot do it alone; we need your help!

Our education program began in 2009 to teach people what to look for or do in case they think a child or dear friend or spouse may have this dreaded disease.

Here is how you can help:

We are currently looking for education and entertainment sponsors. We have different levels of sponsorships available for marketing with us. No matter what level of sponsorship you choose, we will include your business name on our web page at (under the sponsors page) and present your flyers and/or business cards out at our various events. In addition, services and monetary contributions are also greatly appreciated, for the purposes of education and entertainment, children’s activities, musicians, entertainers, prizes and equipment. We could also utilize gift baskets, gift cards, and other items for our event raffles at various events.

We have many opportunities available to market our sponsors! Some of the local events we attend are Painesville Party in the Park, train exhibits, and our own events including Discovery Health and Wellness Fair, Painesville Twp. Family Fun Day, and a diabetic friendly Halloween Party for all ages; annual Fish Festival, Sports Show, and St. Patties Day at Harry Buffalo. There will be raffles at every show where you could donate an item or be the show sponsor.

We will continue our education programs at different locations each month. The various locations are to be announced via our newsletter web page and our Facebook page.

Some of our current sponsors include: The News-Herald, Gazette Newspapers, Lake County Women’s Journal, Spire Institute, Harry Buffalo Painesville Twp., Painesville Party in the Park, Rideout’s IGA, Geneva Chamber, Ashtabula Chamber, Vector Security, Shepp Electric, All State Ins., Asa Cox Realty, Jim Belding Monuments and Max Screen printing.

We are tax exempt, so your sponsorship donation will be considered a charitable contribution. By supporting the Lake County Juvenile Diabetes Walk Family, you are supporting Northeast Ohioans who are affected by this devastating disease. Please contact us if you have any questions about the Lake County Juvenile Diabetes Walk Family. We look forward to hearing from you and the chance of meeting with you in the near future. Thank you for your consideration! Please make all checks payable to Lake County Juvenile Diabetes Walk Family (LCJDWF).

LCJDWF is an independent non profit that has no affiliation with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or any of its chapters.
