Action Cam: Coeur d'Alene Kid With Type 1 Diabetes Wins National Race Car Design Contest!

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - Carson Magee, an 11-year-old fifth grader from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes four years ago at age 7, has won the “Our Everyday Heroes” Race Car Design Contest for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, hosted by Ford Customer Service Division (FCSD) and its brands, Motorcraft and Quick Lane Tire and Auto Centers.

Carson’s winning design pays homage to firefighters, emergency medical technicians, police and each of the U.S. armed services. Carson is one of the nation’s foremost youth activists in support of JDRF and advocates to raise research dollars and awareness to create a world without type 1 diabetes.

“I am so excited to be selected,” said Carson who has made the finals of the contest in each of the last three years and whose design raised $3,735 at www.fordracecar.jdrf.org during the contest. “It’s a terrific opportunity and I’m happy I can help raise awareness about T1D.”
