Wild River Fitness is shining light on diabetes thanks to a donation from Alivia Maki and Paetynn Bliese, Osceola High School students.

This year, Maki and Bliese participated in the “Why Wait?” course at Osceola High School, where participating students help tackle a problem in the world. During the program, these girls focused on raising awareness about type one diabetes by making low blood sugar kits readily available throughout the community. This project hit close to home for Bliese since her father struggles with this disease every day. “I see firsthand the struggles and dangers associated with type one diabetes.” explained Bliese. “Untreated low blood sugar can be dangerous, so our goal was to have a source of glucose nearby for a diabetic emergency.”

Nearly $1,000 was raised, allowing the girls to purchase and restock low blood sugar kits in churches, libraries and gyms throughout the community.

Dr. Nguyen was amazing. He is so friendly. He answered all your questions. He is very professional. I ... first time we've ever seen him, so I would definitely recommend him as a provider. Our experience was nothing but great, the whole time.

Nicole did a great job on the well child visits. She really encouraged healthy lifestyle, and took time to talk to my daughter and get her feedback, and include her in care.
