Dear Principal Hoyt,

Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude to the staff and especially the kids at Florence Roche Elementary School for taking part in and making the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund School Walk a resounding success.

In addition to everyone enjoying the walk, the fundraising effort and donations are simply amazing; early estimates predict the goal will easily be exceeded.

It's not always obvious, but it's actually tough living with Type 1 Diabetes, as it never goes away, and seeing Hannah's school lend its support in helping to find a cure is such a positive message.

Words don't really express how impressed we are, but a huge WELL DONE and THANK YOU to all involved and all who made a donation. What a great community.

Anyone who would like to contribute online to this special cause can visit www2.jdrf.org/goto/Florence Roche.
