More than 600 people headed out to Westgate Park this morning in support of finding a cure for juvenile diabetes.

This is the first ever juvenile diabetes research foundation walk to cure diabetes.

All proceeds from the event will go toward juvenile diabetes research and to increase awareness about the disease.

Juvenile diabetes affects children of all ages and makes them insulin dependent for life.

"As a mother of a child who has juvenile diabetes, the support the community has given us is overwhelming. All there people are here and they are here for our children. Its to help raise money and find a cure for this terrible disease." Says Liesa Jones, an event coordinator.

Organizers say 60 thousand dollars were raised for juvenile diabetes research today.
