Emerson Riel, 4, has Type 1 Diabetes.
But he’s not letting it slow him down.
Taking insulin is just part of the routine for him.
Emerson was diagnosed back in March and will need to take insulin every day for the rest of his life.
He’s one of more than 11-million Canadians who either have diabetes or prediabetes.
And now the Douro native wants you to help find a cure for diabetes.
He’s asking everyone to come out and walk on Saturday at the JDRF Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes at Nicholls Oval.
It starts at 10 AM, check-in is at 8:30 AM
Emerson is also collecting money for the walk.
