Color Rush

Participants came out to support those struggling with Juvenile Diabetes during the 2019 KD Foundation Color Run Fundraiser.

ROCK SPRINGS — The 13th annual KD Foundation Color Rush Fundraiser will take place on Saturday, Sept. 18, at 11 a.m. in Downtown Rock Springs. All proceeds from this fundraiser go to support Sweetwater County Juvenile Diabetics.

Diabetes typically appears during the adolescence years in patients. Treatment can help, but the condition cannot be cured. It can last for years or for the rest of the patient’s life.

The KD Foundation has been assisting Sweetwater County Juvenile Diabetics since 2007.

According to the organization, there can be a financial burden that comes with Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis.

They added that they are committed to helping families ease the burden.

Participants of all ages will take “Steps to Make a Difference”, said one of the organizers, Tina Egbert.

The public will see locals and visitors walking/running approximately three miles while being doused in bright-colored powder throughout the morning.
