Lancastrians will join together Sunday, 1 June to Walk to Cure Diabetes. The Walk is organized by the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Registration opens at Clipper Stadium at 10:30 a.m.

JDRF is the largest charitable supporter and advocate of Type 1 diabetes research. Last year the JDRF Walk raised more than $60,000. It is not too late to contribute. Simply go to www.walk.jdrf.org. More than 600 people participated last year in Lancaster. Participants may walk as individuals, family teams, or even as part of a corporate group.

There will be entertainment, relevant vendors and team photos taken from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The Walk itself will step off at 11:30 a.m. The Walk will exit the stadium and continue on the path up and around the field and back. It will total 1.4 miles. After the walk, participants may stay for a Barnstormers baseball game. All walkers will receive one free ticket to the game. The game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Participating children are invited out to the field of dreams for the national anthem.

Clipper Stadium is located at 650 North Prince Street. Parking is available in the stadium parking lot and is free.

The Barnstormers will face the Sugar Land Skeeters tomorrow. The Barnstormers are now 21-14 in the league. The Skeeters are 15-19. Tomorrow is also Cylo’s birthday.
