Why and How we run the WCDYA
Juvenile Diabetes is on the rise, especially with children under the age of 4. About 1 in every 450 children has Juvenile Diabetes. The Washington County Diabetic Youth Association is a registered non-profit organization established for the support of minors with diabetes and their families in our area. We rely on volunteers to run the organization as well as community fundraisers to support our activities. WCDYA organizes several annual activities for our youth with diabetes with the purposes of:
Providing education to teach skills that promote healthy living.
Having fun activities so the youth with diabetes can have an opportunity to meet and interact with one another.
Giving the parents opportunities to meet each other and provide support.
WCDYA is an entirely local organization so the money we raise here in Washington County stays in Washington County to support our own diabetic youth. All donations to WCDYA are very appreciated and make a very real difference in helping local youth and their parents cope with this disease. Any questions regarding support of WCDYA you can use our contact form, email, or phone number to reach out to us. Thank you in advance for helping support our community's diabetic youth.
