Walkers Trek a 5K Loop Around Aliso Viejo

A group of 45 hits the streets to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

About 45 people took to the streets Sunday morning to raise awareness for juvenile diabetes.

Sponsored by t, the 5K walk kicked off with a speech by Jordan Skolnick, a youth ambassor for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and a member of the fitness club. He was diagnosed with the disease when he was 5.

"Since then, I've had to test my blood sugar 10 times a day and take insulin through a shot five times a day," he said. "It was hard in the beginning because I had to watch what I eat and I had to miss parties and sleepovers.

He added, "It really sucked 'til I got [an insulin] pump. Now I have more freedom to go places. I have not let it slow me down. I still play sports and do what I like to do. "

After the trek, Renaissance fitness director Marcia Volkmann and club operations chief Laurie Smith declared the event a success and promised to make it an annual tradition.
