Home Newsroom 7. Second City to Perform for Dash to Cure Diabetes

It’s January and it’s cold, but the winter weather is no match for a little fun and humor in the name of a great cause.  Mark your calendars because Second City’s company of touring comedians is making a pit stop at Barrington High School to perform the night of Friday, January 25th.

Post - Second City Dash for Diabetes Tour

Second City’s touring performers group is known for its hilarious and topical revues in the form of improv-based sketch comedies.  But this performance has a bigger meaning for families behind Barrington’s DASH to Cure Diabetes, Inc.  The group is an Illinois 501 (C) (3) Non-Profit organization with a mission to increase pubic awareness about and raise research money to help cure type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Post - Go Dash LogoAccording to their website, the organization outlines their mission by writing, “Diabetes affects over 16 million Americans, 4 million children, and can strike at any time. INSULIN IS NOT A CURE! It only helps maintain diabetics’ sugar levels. Without a cure, the afflicted face an ultra-strict diet, up to 8 finger pricks and 4 shots a day for the rest of their lives, poor circulation, loss of vision, kidney and heart conditions, and more.”

They’re doing their part to help find a cure by raising funds for research with events like the upcoming Second City show at BHS and 14th annual DASH to Cure Diabetes race coming up at Citizens Park in Barrington on Sunday, May 26, 2013.

The Second City performance at Barrington High School starts at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 25th.   Tickets cost $30 per adult or $15 for students with ID’s.  (Content is rated PG)

This event benefits the scholarship program of The American Diabetes Association Triangle D Summer Camp at Camp Duncan in Volo, IL. “The ADA Camp Triangle D combines a program of summer activities with a program of diabetes education and support. Both components are designed to challenge each camper to reach toward their maximum potential, both mentally and physically. The campers are actively involved with their medical staff in managing their diabetes.”
