POOLER, GA (WTOC) -

Monday night, folks gathered at Skate City in Pooler to be apart of the first ever "Skate a Day in My Shoes". The event was held to benefit the American Diabetes Association.

The special fundraiser was held to show the difficulties one daily faces when living with Type-1 diabetes.

Suzanne Willis of the American Diabetes Association said about the event: ""it's really an event to honor all kids living with type one diabetes, so we are just getting out here and supporting and being active, just like most kids do."

The event also honored a few young people for their perserverance and spirit while living with diabetes.
