"Beila's Bunch" Walk For Juvenile Diabetes Cure

Owl & Drum is excited to participate in the upcoming Tulsa 2012 Walk For The Cure, an important fund-raiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

And we are hoping our friends and customers will help us raise some much-needed money – or join our team on the 1.25-mile walk – to help find a cure for this debilitating disease. 

This year’s Walk For The Cure will begin with registration at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at the OU Tulsa Schusterman Center, 4502 E. 41st St. The walk starts at 10 a.m. For those of you who are into something a little more challenging there will be a 5K run. The run begins at 9 a.m. Click here for the run registration.

The annual event generates funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, whose research goals are patient-focused on finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes and removing the disease from the lives of sufferers. The nonprofit also develops better ways to treat the disease and improve people’s lives, and to prevent Type 1 occurring in those most susceptible.

Owl & Drum’s “special little friend,” Beila, has Type 1 juvenile diabetes and has to go through a daily routine to deal with the disease.

Her family found out she had diabetes in the summer of 2011 and Beila, now age 6, began receiving an insulin shot as little as four times a day. Recently, she began using an insulin pump that feeds her insulin through a little tube.

Her mother, Sacha, and sisters Juniper and Kalliope will be supporting Beila on next month’s walk, plus many family and friends, as team "Beila's Bunch."

We hope you can join us on Nov. 3 or sponsor our walkers. "We look forward to a fun walk that means a lot to our family" says Beila's mother Sacha.

We also have a JDRF donation jar on the counter of our store at 2810 E. 15th St. in Tulsa. Owl & Drum will be matching the donations given in the store.

Here's a little video about a day in the life of Beila.
