Through an aggressive viral campaign, two teen boys were able to raise $20,000 for Monarch School of San Diego designed to educate homeless youth. Brothers Connor (16) and Sean (13) Jabbar launched their venture Double Peak on Dec. 1, 2017. Their idea was to combine their passion for the outdoors and boarding with their desire to give back to communities. Double Peak is a lifestyle-based clothing line that donates its entire proceeds to charitable causes. Their first charitable partner was Monarch School of San Diego and now they have turned their attention to supporting T1D research through their “Peakin for a Cure” campaign for JDRF.
Our neighbor and my longest childhood friend, Jack Creelman, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes before the age of 2. Sean and I have seen the challenges that Jack and others with T1D face daily, and have a lot of respect for Jack constantly moving forward and overcoming them. When Jack heard what Sean and I were doing, it was his idea to launch the next campaign for JDRF. Like our motto, peaks and valleys are what Jack faces every day, and so Jack and I thought it was perfect to support a cause that is all about finding your peak,” says Connor.
“Peakin For a Cure,” runs from Feb. 1, 2018 through March 31, 2018.
“I am very excited about this opportunity to work with one of my closest friends who has seen me dealing with the daily challenges of diabetes. There are many peaks and valleys with diabetes. JDRF has been a part of my life since my diagnosis and to have Double Peak raise money for this special cause means a lot,” says Jack.
Together, the boys have designed a special t-shirt specifically for this cause and 100% of the sale of all apparel, including the specially designed T1D shirt, will be donated to JDRF to support Creating a World Without T1D.

A big Thank You to Connor and Sean Jabbar and to Jack Creelman!!
