Local Delaware Valley Businesses join forces to Score for the Cure of Type 1 Diabetes


Score for the Cure is an ice hockey tournament that will take place August 14 at Revolution Ice Gardens in Warminster, PA. The tournament also includes Revolution Loop — a 5K run / walk, cornhole tournament, family fun activities, delicious food, live music, and more. Proceeds will go to fund the research and advocacy initiatives conducted by JDRF with a portion also being donated to Black Bear Foundation to support youth in their pursuit to play hockey that otherwise would not be able as a way to thank Black Bear Sports Group for their generous donation of their rinks and other facilities in the complex that day.

Join local GDV Chapter members father son duo David and Eric Dahan who are helping organize and participate in this event. Eric was diagnosed with T1D at a young age but never let it hold him back from being a stellar athlete. David discusses the importance of a good support system and how one good friends’ words of advice have resonated through the years. There are no days off with Type 1 Diabetes.
