Students Raise Money for Diabetes Research
In honor of World Diabetes Day, students at PJH wore blue, the official color honoring this day. Sixth grader Kieran Hunter led the charge with idea to wear blue on Friday, November 13. November 14 is the actual day which is the birthday of the man who co-discovered insulin, Sir Frederick Banting. Banting discovered insulin in 1922, alongside Charles Best.
Students could also donate $1 to wear basketball shorts and/or caps and teachers could donate $1 and wear wind pants for the day. By the time the day was over, PJH students and staff raised about $100 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
