_ The 2018 Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation 5k Walk/run
Founded in 2017, the Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization established to preserve the memory of Dylan Konakowitz by helping others. Our goal is not only to offer scholarships to the New London County community that knew and loved Dylan, but also to educate the public and raise awareness of the seriousness of type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. T1D develops when the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. The cause of this attack is still being researched, however scientists believe the cause may have genetic and environmental components.
_ The 1st Annual Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation 5k is a road walk/run through the ocean front district of New London.
