•About the Event. Billy George was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on (date) at the age of (age). Billy has been approved for a Diabetic Alert Dog. All proceeds from the run and the event will go towards helping another family get a diabetic alert dog. 

Besides the race, the day of the event, the family will be selling BBQ plates, there will be a raffle , sales of baked and canned goods (all grown and made at George Farms). There will be face painting, a pumpkin costume contest, and other fun events the day of the race.

At George Farms, we truly put our family and community first. With our family running the farm, we have held many community events. We farm strawberries, pumpkins, summer vegetables, sunflowers, and anything else we can get into our fields. Currently, we are organizing a Community Fun Run to help raise money to raise money for a new family to receive a Diabetic Alert Dog. The idea is to have the path thru the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin, but remember you have to carry it to the finish! Our plan is to make this an annual run, with a different child being our main focus every year. Participants and sponsors will receive swag including t-shirts, medals, and pumpkins. 


What is a Diabetic Alert Dog? For years, Diabetes Assist Dogs have been used to detect low blood sugar levels in their diabetic owners and warn them of a hypoglycemic attack. Dogs smell their world. The dogs can detect the tiniest odors about one part per trillion. This lets the dogs sniff out various forms of cancer and diabetes.
