Steve Minnich, owner/operator of Tinman Enterprises and Radiant Comfort Systems, Hoffman Estates, IL, has a personal stake in this year’s Ron Santo Walk To Cure Juvenile Diabetes in Chicago. His daughter, Stevie, has the disease.

Fortunately for Stevie, many people have come to her aid, including Dan Holohan, founder of the website, Holohan is selling “Stevie’s Team” baseball caps and donating the proceeds to Juvenile Diabetes research. Holohan also put on a seminar that helped raise over $20,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

“Dan’s commitment on behalf of Stevie’s Team has been truly amazing, to say the least,” said Stevie’s mom, Linda Minnich.

The Minnich family will be there for the walk on October 14, which raises funds for the JDRF. Statistics regarding diabetes and materials to be used for the walk’s fundraising can be obtained by visiting
