Foundation makes donation in support of type 1 diabetes research

TOPP Foundation (Type One Parent Project) made a $10,000 donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Fund-A-Cure program on April 17.

All donations to Fund-A-Cure go directly toward cutting-edge medical research aimed at improving the lives of individuals with type 1 diabetes and ultimately finding a cure. TOPP raised the money by hosting their annual Cocktail’s for a Cure fundraiser last fall.

TOPP Foundation is a local nonprofit founded in 2016 by three mothers who each have a son with type 1 diabetes. TOPP’s mission is to support and connect the local T1D community and raise funds supporting efforts to find a cure.

The local T1D community is supported by TOPP in multiple ways. TOPP hosts a T1D parent support group on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in the Central Bucks Ambulance and Rescue Building, 455 East St., Doylestown. In addition, it hosts family friendly social events for families living with T1D, organize monthly luncheons, and hold successful fundraising campaigns twice a year. TOPP’s next fundraiser, Cocktails for a Cure, will be held in November at the Bucks Club in Jamison.

TOPP Camp Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to families wishing to send children with type 1 eiabetes to Camp Freedom, a specialized diabetes summer camp.
