The Diabetes Research Institute held a Carnival for a Cure at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City on March 13th, 2011 to raise money to help the DRI find a cure for diabetes. Over 1,000 people attended the event, and more than $400,000 was raised. There were games for kids, clowns, moon bounces and more.

Nick Jonas came with his parents.

New York restaurants shared their culinary specialties, and carb counts were posted – a dream come true for this double-bolusing mama. Wouldn’t it be great if every restaurant posted carb counts.

Now just imagine the carnival to celebrate a cure for diabetes!
