The 5th Annual Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation DK5K Walk/Run Saturday May 21st 2022 9amOcean Beach, New London Ct.

Founded in 2017, the Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization established to preserve the memory of Dylan Konakowitz by helping others. Our goal is not only to offer scholarships to the New London County community that knew and loved Dylan, but also to educate the public and raise awareness of the seriousness of type 1 diabetes (T1D).Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. T1D develops when the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. The cause of this attack is still being researched, however scientists believe the cause may have genetic and environmental components.
