— Eighty people from Rock County traveled to Madison on Sept. 23 to participate in the Walk to Cure Diabetes.

The Western Wisconsin Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation team, the ROCK, raised more than $12,000, which is $5,000 over their goal. The ROCK organized this spring and is led by co-captain Jenny White from Janesville. The ROCK is an acronym for Rock County Obtaining a Cure for Kids with Type 1 Diabetes.


Participating team members included 14 children with Type 1 diabetes and their families and friends.
