Thank you WMP..And The Blogger We Know As Trot 7....

" Red Sox Slugger Wily Mo Pena on Base for Joslin Diabetes Center"....read this, please!!!

BOSTON, Jan. 17 (AScribe Newswire) -- "Boston Red Sox Wily Mo Pena is teaming up with Joslin Diabetes Center's Latino Diabetes Initiative for the Beisbol y Salud Diabetes Awareness Project. Pena will host this program in the Dominican Republic on Jan. 20-21 and in Boston this spring to raise diabetes awareness in the Latino population. Several other Major League Baseball players will join Pena in the Dominican Republic for the project, which includes a softball game that is sure to be a highlight of the event. The two-day program is being coordinated by Wily Mo Pena's newly formed MoPeace Foundation, which aims to give back to those in need. This particular project will focus on the Latino community, which is at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.".....
"Combating diabetes is a cause close to my heart and to my family's because so many of us have been touched negatively by this horrible disease," said Wily Mo Pena. "Any strength we can lend to the fight is our privilege, and we are honored to work with Joslin Diabetes Center."
