Dean Sink accepts SuperStar Award from JDRF?s Eleanor Schaffner-Mosh and Eric Durham.

The Piedmont Triad (NC) Chapter of the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) presented its first-ever ?SuperStar Award? to Dean Sink, President/CEO of Mickey Truck Bodies, who served as Corporate Chair for the High Point One Walk on April 29, 2017. Under Dean?s leadership the Walk broke records for dollars raised and number of participants ? including individual walkers and corporate sponsors. Dean was also elected as a Chapter Board member to serve a 2-year term.

?Finding a cure for type 1 diabetes is a cause Dean wholeheartedly believes in, and he knows that involving more people means we?ll get to that cure more quickly,? says Eleanor Schaffner-Mosh, Executive Director of the Piedmont Triad Chapter. ?From the minute he agreed to serve as Chair, Dean jumped in with both feet, rallying tremendous support for JDRF throughout the community. Dean led the High Point Walk to the most incredible results ever in terms of corporate sponsors, number of fundraising teams, number of walkers, and obviously overall money raised. So we created the ?JDRF SuperStar? Award just for him.?

?I know that JDRF research has made a huge difference for children and adults who live with this disease day in and day out,? says Dean. ?This is a very important cause that I am happy to support ? and happy to enlist others to join me.?

JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, and has committed over $2 billion to research since its founding in 1970. The organization is currently sponsoring $568 million in charitable research, including 50 active clinical trial, in 18 countries. The Piedmont Triad Chapter covers 14 North Carolina counties.
