About This Activity

Cranford Cure Diabetes 5K is being run on Saturday, Oct. 24 to rally support to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, a disease that impacts many people in our communities. This year, we’re proud to include all the Cranford Wrestling Programs as both event sponsors and benefactors.  Cranford Wrestling builds character, commitment, discipline and dedication, characteristics fundamental for success in all aspects of life.

Schmitts’ Quest for the Cure originated as a family and friends team that rode each year in the Tour de Cure, a national fundraising event for diabetes research and treatment.  After 11 years of enthusiastic participation, we took our fundraising efforts to the next level and created a 501(c)3 organization to afford us the best opportunity to raise money to help find a cure for Type I diabetes and support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
