Welcome to the fourth annual Ace for a Cure at Wilmington Country Club. This tennis outing is a grass court tennis event like none other in
Delaware. The round robin, doubles format tennis event is played on the
beautiful grounds of Wilmington Country Club.
Morning tennis is followed
by a luncheon, raffle and awards for Flight winners. All levels of play
are welcomed to attend and doubles players are divided into two levels:
Flight A (4.0 and above) and Flight B (3.5 and below).
Linda Rudnick chaired the first Delaware event in 2014, and since then Ace for a Cure at
Wilmington Country Club has raised $78,500 locally for type 1
research. Linda, the Ace for a Cure Committee and JDRF Delaware look forward to
welcoming participants, sponsors and guests this summer for our fourth event on Tuesday, June 13, 2017.
Participants and sponsors can register online or contact Tarra Mandeville, Executive Director at the JDRF Delaware Chapter, at (302) 888-1117 or
We're the stop at nothing type
exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by
type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome
this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D
an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to
produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It
strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and
lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose
testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding
critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to
bring us closer to a world without T1D.
