WILLOW GLEN—15 May 2013. Sereno Group’s Willow Glen Office announced the American Diabetes Association will be the office’s 1% for Good recipient for the second quarter of 2013. Willow Glen’s contribution will specifically help to underwrite the organization’s “Healthy Challenge Camp for Kids” at Seven Trees Community Center in San Jose in August of this year.
Currently over 215,000 persons under age 20 have diabetes. The purpose of the camp is to educate high risk youth of the health dangers of diabetes, and its prevention. The camp will focus on underprivileged youth ages 10 to 15 who have been identified to be at risk of developing diabetes or have been diagnosed with diabetes.
The camp will offer an educational and fun-filled environment which includes sessions on diabetes education, nutrition, physical activity, swimming, arts and crafts, and field trips. Youth will meet new friends, and learn with peers who have similar health issues.
The American Diabetes Association estimates that one person every 17 seconds, 5,000 people a day, and 1.8 million people a year will be diagnosed with diabetes.
“Sereno Group Willow Glen is very honored to be helping the American Diabetes Association,” said Joe Pollifrone, sales manager for the office, “And to be assisting with the ‘Healthy Challenge Camp for Kids’ is something that we appreciate greatly. Diabetes has no prejudice and can happen to anyone.”
