Would you like your child to become a "Dustin McGowan T1D All-Star"?

Being a major league pitcher is hard work, and Miami Marlins pitcher, Dustin McGowan, is succeeding! Dustin steps up to this challenge every day, managing his type 1 diabetes (T1D) to ensure he is ready every time he is called upon to pitch by the Miami Marlins. Dustin's T1D All-Stars is a unique opportunity for kids who have T1D.

Dustin is inviting kids with T1D and one parent to come to one of the Marlins’ games listed below, be on the field for batting practice, learn a little bit about diabetes, and stay for the game as his guest.  Each child will receive a cool T1D All-Stars T-shirt, meet Dustin, learn and be inspired!

THIS IS OPEN TO 1 ADULT AND 1 CHILD WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES ONLY
