    The Nemaha Central Middle School 8th graders along with Team Schnak hosted an Awareness Walk on Saturday, April 28. The Awareness Walk was held to raise funds for Northeast Kansas Type 1 diabetes families. The 8th graders worked hard planning this event for about two months. This event offered food, fun, games, and a walk. Participants registered and then kids could play games and parents could relax and network with other parents. Some of the games and activities for the kids were ladder ball, bean bag toss, face paint, and tattoos. 

     Cormik Hajek said, "It was really fun and I was glad I got to help spread awareness for Type One Diabetes."

    The Awareness Walk started off by Kent Schnakenberg welcoming all participants and Father Arul saying a quick prayer, blessing the walk. Participants started the walk together and then could walk as many times around the track as they wanted. As walkers finished they could head over for lunch. The lunch consisted of hot dogs, cooked by the Boy Scouts, chips, and water. Participants enjoyed each other's conversations and then headed out. The event raised around $2,900 for area families. Kent Schnakenberg rode his bike 60 miles to donate $600 from the Team Schnak Foundation to kick off the event.  Thanks to all of those who came out on the beautiful late April morning to walk for a great cause!

    "It was a really nice day, and it was a lot of fun! The food was good and we all had a lot of fun while spreading awareness!" said Savannah Engelken.
