CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 26 - October 2, 1997 - 39 First diabetes ribbo,iI presented to Ruth Ann Minner By Rosanne Pack The first official pewter Dia- betes Ribbon in Delaware was presented to Lt. Governor Ruth Ann Minner earlier this week as the American Diabetes Associa- tion (ADA) Delaware affiliate prepares for the annual fundraiser, Waiktoberfest, Sunday, Oct. 5. In late spring of this year, the Diabetes Ribbon was introduced in the state by those attending the Third Annual Family Weekend Retreat for families, friends and youngsters who have Type 1 dia- betes. The handmade silver col- ored ribbons and red jewel dots were first assembled and intro- duced in Sussex County, and the presentation to Minner marks another "first" for ADA and Sus- sex County. Since the family retreat, ADA officials commis- sioned Salisbury Pewter to cast the pins that are accented with a red rhinestone dot. Minner is a Type 2 diabetic, and she said that she would be proud to wear the ribbon to show her support for ADA and for research and awareness of diabetes. The lieutenant governor said she plans to participate in the Oct. 5 10K whlk that annually raises funds for education and research for the dis- ease that afflicts 17 million people in the United States. Of those, approximately 1 million are Type Rosanne Pack photo The first Diabetes Ribbon in Delaware is presented to Lt.

Walktoberfest planners hope to have a supply of the pewter rib- bons available in time for the walk. Don Post, special events coordinator for Sussex ADA said that the ribbc]ns will sell for less than $10. "We are not looking at ribbon sales so much as a fundraiser as we are hoping to raise aware- ness," Post said. "We want to have as many people wearing them as possible, and for that reason, we will keep them as reasonably priced as possible." Patt Wagner, R.N. and certified diabetes educator, presented the first ribbon to Minner. She said those who have the disease and their families and friends are working to create higher visibility and to increase general knowledge of diabetes and its far-reaching consequences, which include financial burdens as well as health risks. Wagner works at the ADA regional office at Bay Health Cen- ter in Milford. She is enlisting Walktoberfest volunteers to wear the Bayhealth Team shirts that carry the logo "Just Cure It!"
