The My Team Over Everything Foundation, which organized the walk, was sponsored by 19-year-old Jamario Williams. Williams also suffers from juvenile diabetes. He led the march, which included the Kittrell students, along with Henderson Mayor Eddie Ellington, North Carolina Representative Terry Garrison and City Councilmember Marion Williams. Funds from the walk will be donated to the Juvenile Diabestes Research Foundation.
The walk gave Kittrell students a chance to learn more about this condition and spend time with Mayor Ellington.
