240 Pound St. Peters Businessman Determined to Race In the GO! St. Louis Marathon And Raise Research Money to Cure His Son’s Diabetes
Rick Pogue – President of Arrowhead Building Supply, a St. Peters institution for over 16 years - is dusting off his running shoes, training on a regular basis and has pledged to get fit for the April 6-7 weekend event. Rick’s son – Sam – is 17 and was diagnosed with T1D (type 1 diabetes) at the age of eight. Rick is raising money to help JDRF – the leading global charitable supporter of T1D research.
Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has raised more than $1.7 billion to fund the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating and prevent insulin-dependent diabetes.
