The STEAM Race Challenge, sponsored by the Transportation Education Foundation of Georgia, is an opportunity for SkillsUSA members to showcase their Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics skills at the Fall Leadership Conference.

CK Participates in JDRF One Walk

JDRF One Walk, held on October 17, 2015, has a single goal: creating
a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). Cross Keys SkillsUSA members
joined the walk to help JDRF continue to fund life-changing research
for the millions of children, adults and families affected by T1D.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas
loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food
into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. Cross Keys SkillsUSA President, Fernando Flores, stated that this was indeed an honor to walk because three of our advisors have Type 2 diabetes.”

All walkers that raised $100 or more by walk day earned an official
JDRF One Walk™ t-shirt. Jackie Juarez stated, “Visiting
the New
Family tent to gain information about JDRF, T1D, and upcoming programs and events was very interesting.” SkillsUSA members look forward to the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes.
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is the signature fundraising walk of the American Diabetes Association. Jose Para, stated: “I’ll be there.”JDRF One Walk
