Far Hills Country Day School Fifth-Grader Named to JDRF Children's Congress

Rising sixth-grade student, Jack Morais, has been named as a delegate to the JDRF Children's Congress, representing New Jersey. The Congress will take place in Washington, DC from July 24–26, 2017, and will include meetings with the country's top lawmakers.

Delegates to the Congress range from ages four to seventeen, and represent all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The delegates in JDRF's Children's Congress will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help Members of Congress understand what life with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is like, and why research to fund life-changing therapies until a cure can be found is so critical.

"I am NOT a diabetic, I HAVE diabetes," says Jack, who wants to make one thing very clear: people with T1D are just like everyone else. Diagnosed just two years ago, Jack doesn't like talking about his T1D, but he has enthusiastically embraced the role of fundraiser for T1D research. He also coordinated a project between JDRF and our Service Learning Day to help other students understand T1D better.

Congratulations, Jack! We are very proud of you.
