Scio Lions Dice Run

On Saturday, August 25, Tall Pines ATV Park, 1812 Jones Road in Andover, will be hosting a dice run fundraiser for the Scio Lions Club designed to help the local fight against diabetes.  Side-by-sides, 4-wheelers and motorcycles are all welcome at the regular price of admission to the Park; $20 per driver and $10 per passenger.  The dice run begins at 9:00 am and prizes will be awarded at 1:00 pm.  Refreshment stops will have water, soft drinks and original Wellsville Texas Hots.  All proceeds from this event will be forwarded to Allegany County diabetes associations.

 

            Some startling statistics about diabetes:

 

·         Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death in the world.  Five million people die annually from the illness or complications of diabetes; one every 7 seconds.

·         In New York State (NYS) over 2 million people have diabetes and 517,000 are pre-diabetic.  Cost for treatment in NYS tops 21 billion dollars every year.

·         25 % of adults over the age of 65 have diabetes.

·         In Allegany County, 2017 data shows that 9.3% of adults have diabetes.  The rate for adults in Steuben County is 11.2 %; 2nd highest in NYS.

 

This Dice Run is sponsored by Seneca Gaming Corporation and Tall Pines ATV Park.

Please come, enjoy riding for a worthy cause, and help the Scio Lions assist you and your neighbors in fighting the effects of diabetes.
