Logan, UT—Screaming fans filled the Cleveland Indians’ Jacobs Field Tuesday, Aug.16 for a gala of baseball and fundraising for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Max Rowe, a young boy from St. Louis who has been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, wanted to make a difference in the fight against this life-altering disease. Together, JDRF and the Rowe family have formed a partnership to promote the orange Max-Life wristbands.
The idea behind the Max-Life orange wristbands is to maximize awareness, maximize hope and ultimately maximize life.
“Reminderband helps promote our cause of raising money for juvenile diabetes research and we have received so much support from them,” said President Hank Reed of Charity Bands.
JDRF has raised $3 million from the bands and 100 percent of the profits go to further research on juvenile diabetes.
“Reminderband is committed to help provide awareness for great foundations such as the JDRF,” said one of Reminderband’s partners, Aaron Bishop.
Fox sports broadcaster Joe Buck is often seen wearing the Max-Life wristband in support of the JDRF cause and recorded a 90-second introduction to start the night off.
“Joe’s introduction was really awesome and kicked the night off great,” said Reed.
A Ford Mustang was raffled off and Ford volunteers, along with Miss Ohio, sported the orange wristbands.
“We are excited to be giving the Max-Life wristbands to supporters, families, friends and contributors to help raise awareness,” Reed said.
