New Signature is pleased to announce the relaunch of the Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament website. New Signature worked with Dodging Diabetes’ founders Anna Tiedeman Irwin and Elizabeth Kramer to re-envision the graphic design, information architecture and functionality of this interactive website. The site was built on the WordPress content management system in order to provide the founders and volunteers with an easy way to update content on the website. In addition, the site leverages active.com to provide registration, donation, and team fundraising functions.
Anna Tiedeman Irwin, Elizabeth Kramer and a team of volunteers from the D.C. area founded the Dodging Diabetes charity in 2005 to raise money and awareness to defeat diabetes for good. Both Anna and Elizabeth have brothers who live with Type 1 diabetes. Dodging Diabetes has netted over $40,000 for the Joslin Diabetes Center through its annual charity dodgeball tournaments.
For their fifth anniversary, they have set a goal of raising $10,000 for the Joslin Diabetes Center to bring our 5 year total to over to $50,000. Last year, over 300 people participated in the 4th Annual Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament. If ducking, dodging, and diving for charity sounds like fun you should organize a team and participate this year! New Signature will be sponsoring a team, as we have done every year since the first tournament. The 5th Annual Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament will be on Saturday, March 20 at Champions Fieldhouse in Rockville, Maryland.
