Ty Archer Honored To Cut The Ribbon at The San Diego Walk To Cure Diabetes
On November 4th and 5th, 2011 the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) held its first annual “Shoot for a Cure” basketball tournament to raise awareness and donations for the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes.
The walk took place on November 12th in Balboa Park in the pouring rain. Ty Archer, son of Regents Banks’ Joanna Archer, was honored by being asked to stand alongside the CEO of Coca-Cola and kick off the walk by cutting the ribbon at the starting line. Over $2,200.00 was raised locally as over 2,500 people came to Balboa Park and braved the elements for this very worthy cause. To date JDRF has raised over $500,000 from this event.
Ty was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2009. The Archer family decided to start the annual fundraising basketball tournament and named it “Shoot For A Cure”, from which the proceeds were donated to the annual JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. The tournament was held in the San Diego community of Allied Gardens.
