Each year, more than 13,000 young individuals are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes according to the Center for Disease Control. In July, Culumus Media Station WPDH and Craig Thomas Pest Control hosted the 27th Annual Roof-A-Thon to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
 
 "As a local business owner, giving back and supporting your local community is important," said Craig Thomas, president of Craig Thomas Pest Control. "Sponsoring Roof-A-Thon was an easy decision and really worth participating in." Along with sponsoring the event, Craig Thomas declared July and August JDRF months. Any new bee services during those months, ten percent of sale will go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
 
Diabetes was the seventh-leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates in 2006 and is likely to be under reported as a cause of death, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. Roof-A-Thon raised thousands dollars for JDRF. Jean-Marie Trick of JDRF said, " What a tremendous effort was made on behalf of JDRF - it was absolutely amazing."
