As a long-standing supporter of Diabetes SoluT1ons, this year we provided a generous donation for their annual Charity Golf Event. Diabetes SoluT1ons is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports programming for individuals impacted by Type 1 Diabetes. Until there is a cure, we need to provide solutions that ease the burden and provide a supportive community for those impacted by diabetes.

ADA Tour De Cure
J&B Medical helped support the ADA Tour de Cure® at Domino’s Farms in Ann Arbor, MI. 2023 which marked more than 30 years of being connected and riding for a cure! The day was full of fun and excitement as attendees celebrated people living with diabetes and fundraised in support of the mission of the American Diabetes Association. The event offered routes for all ages and abilities and event activities, including a wellness partner information center, a Meijer Kid’s Zone, a Petting Farm, and an ADA Cafe for lunch.
Today in the US, over 11.3 % or 37.3 million people have diabetes. The prevalence is much worse in many places globally. By participating in the Tour de Cure, we were directly impacting the lives of people facing the daily challenges of diabetes and supporting one of the American Diabetes Association’s most significant fundraising events.

We are an ongoing proud supporter of Camp Midicha. Camp Midicha is one of the largest and only all-volunteer residential summer camp programs for children with diabetes, serving 550+children annually. Camp Midicha has been helping kids with diabetes since 1955 and is located at Camp Copneconic in Fenton, Michigan. Each year, dozens of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians and other volunteers give their time and spend at least one week at camp teaching these children the skills they need to live healthy lives. In 2017, Camp Midicha started year-round programming, including a weekend Family camp and Young Adult camp (serving 18-25-year-olds).
Camp Midicha isn’t just another fun summer camp. Camp Midicha is a safe place where kids get to be kids (despite their diabetes). Campers find comfort being around hundreds of other children and many staff members that share their same daily struggles which helps them formally and informally learn life-changing skills that prepare them to manage their diabetes independently as they grow into young adults.
