The College will bring the capes to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk to Cure Diabetes in Franklin Lakes on Sunday, October 14, where children with diabetes will be invited to design his or her own superhero cape. The theme for the walk is “Be a Hero.” Fabric for the capes was donated by Milton Decorator Fabrics in Lodi. According to the JDRF, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the United States each year.
