Nov. 1 was designated as World Diabetes Day and the commencement of National Diabetes Awareness Month. Spofford, N.H. resident and Bement School student, Keira, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 8, strives to bring awareness and eventually a cure for the disease she has been living with for over three years. Her efforts, once again, included participation in the annual Junior Diabetes Research Foundation One Walk at Six Flags New England on Oct. 16. Showing support for Keira, Bement students launched the “Kicking it for Keira” team in 2015.
