Each month, the JDRF Southwest Ohio staff recognizes a special volunteer who goes above and beyond in supporting the chapter and is a positive ambassador for the organization.
October 2017 Volunteer of the Month
Dawn Bringer’s first JDRF event was the JDRF One Walk in 2015, and from there she and her family have only given back more and more in the T1D community. With two personal T1D connections – her son, Austin, and her sister-in-law, Melissa – Dawn spends a lot of time and effort helping JDRF find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Her favorite event is the JDRF Cincinnatian of the Year Gala where she volunteers and leads all of the younger volunteer children. Dawn’s best advice for someone recently diagnosed with T1D is to “Have patience, have hope, and get connected to a T1D community near you and you will never be alone!”
Thank you, Dawn, for everything you do to help make type one into type none!
