Comedy for a Cause

March 23 was the American Diabetes Association Alert Day.  It was a call to action for all Americans to know their risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes. Now that you know your risk, it's time to take action. 

The ADA funds almost $9 million in research in New York, including nearly $1 million for a research project at UAlbany.

The ADA holds an annual community forum in Albany to educate and people about diabetes.

The ADA operates Camp Aspire in Rush, NY, bringing in hundreds of children with diabetes from all over the state.

The ADA offers a program to educate employers and employees called "Winning at Work".

There are many other ways the American Diabetes Association reaches out to members of the Capital Region, to provide valuable information and resources.  But all of that costs money. 

One way you can get involved is a fun night out next Thursday, April 1 at 7:30 pm.  It's called "Comedy for a Cause" at the Comedy Works at the Best Western on Wolf Rd. Tickets are $20, and proceeds benefit the local ADA.   Make it a girls or guys night out.  Make it a date night.  Great comedy for a great cause.

 For more information, or call 800-JOKE-TIX.
