2020 Lincoln Breakthrough T1D Dream Gala – Fund A Cure Recap


On May 9th the Breakthrough T1D Dream Gala went Beyond the Ballroom for a virtual Fund A Cure program raising more than $150,000! This inspirational evening featured videos from our T1D community, special messages to our sponsors and donors, and The Elswick family shared their moving story.

The excitement continued the following day with 50 Hours to Fund A Cure in honor of Breakthrough T1D’s 50th Anniversary. During that time, we heard from Breakthrough T1D Champion, Gina Sherwood-Klein, and honored Dr. Steve Leeper, a founder of the Lincoln chapter. Watch this video honoring Dr. Leeper and hear from Jan Leeper about the early days in starting the chapter. Horizon Bank generously matched all donations during those 50 Hours!

The Breakthrough T1D Dream Gala – Beyond the Ballroom Fund A Cure, truly showed that we are stronger together. Thank you to all those who supported the event. Because of you, we have made amazing breakthroughs, and together we have the power to see this through to the finish.

Special thanks to the Elswick family, this year’s Fund A Cure family.
