Jace is a 5-year-old student at Rush Elementary who has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. His family is trying to raise funds to purchase a Diabetic Alert Dog for Jace, which would help monitor Jace’s blood sugar levels and alert him when his blood sugar levels are getting too low. Crystal Davila, Jace’s mother, said that the dog alone will cost between $1300 to $1500, not including the costs for caring for the dog and medical supplies. To date, the Davilas have raised $1650.

There will be several opportunities to donate to the Jace Davila fund. The Chick-Fil-A location at 312 University Avenue will be donating a proceed of the sales to the fund on Tuesday, April 4th from 2 PM to 9 PM. There will also be fundraisers at Mr. Gatti’s on April 18th from 5PM to 9 PM and at Raising Canes on Slide on Thursday, May 2nd. To donate at any of these fundraisers, just mention the Davila family when you place your order.
