Dig 4 Diabetes began in the summer of 2009 as Becky and Jennifer (being the awesome, supportive spouses that they are) spent endless hours in the sun watching their husbands play in many of the sand tournaments in North West Arkansas. That summer they also decided to participate in the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, and were thinking of creative ways to raise money for this important cause.
And, so the adventure began and Dig 4 Diabetes was born, combining the boy's love of volleyball and the girls support.
Over 25 million people in the United States live every day with diabetes, and all efforts put us closer to finding a cure! All proceeds from the events are donated to the Northwest Arkansas American Diabetes Association, where these funds are used for diabetes research, advocacy and educational programs in the local community.
