ALBION – Amiley DeBoard, 8, throws the ball at a target for the dunk tank today. The Martin family in Albion ran the “Dunk Tank for Diabetes” and raised $500 that will be given to Strong Memorial Hospital’s Endocrinology Department.

That money will be used to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.

Greg Martin sits in the dunk tank this afternoon. His son Enoch, 14, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about four years ago.

Isla DeBoard, 5, eyes Greg Martin in the dunk tank. Isla was able to hit the target and have Martin fall into the water.
