Volunteers wash cars to benefit ADA

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Saturday, some folks got their car washed for a good cause. Volunteers teamed up with Home Instead Senior Care to wash cars, and all profits benefited the American Diabetes Association.

Organizer Tracy Baugh says it's an important cause since so many lives are touched by type one and type two diabetes.  "My daughter Christy, who's playing the chicken over here, she has type one diabetes, and it's certainly a life changing disease," Baugh said. 

She encourages anyone who thinks they have or could be at risk for diabetes to get checked, because she says early detection and management are the keys to success.
