Carter has a best friend (that is a BOY! Gasp!). She and Devin have been in daycare together for years, went to preschool together last year, and were able to walk hand-in-hand to their kindergarten class together this year. Devin is an awesome kid! He’s goofy, kind and respectful, a kid you can’t help but love!
Devin also has Juvenile Diabetes. His dad shared that, on average, they prick Devin’s finger to test about 2,550 times per year (that’s about 7 times per day).
When his family extended the invitation to join Devin’s Legion, we jumped at the chance to support of pal and his family. We walked the sky walks of downtown Des Moines, all wearing the team’s shirts, supporting one awesome dude and a great cause! There was a great turn out, not just in support of Devin but for others. It was overwhelming to see everyone in their personalized (and awesome!) shirts, and groups of supporters walking for a cause. It was wonderful to be a part of something so awesome!
