The club's final donation was to the Oconee Medical Center Foundation.  Here's the note that went with the check:
Please accept this donation for your juvenile diabetes program.

Oconee Road Runners Club has disbanded. On behalf of all the former members I'd like to thank the Oconee Medical Center Foundation for helping young people in our community with diabetes. The club actually started as a group of neighbors jogging with a girl who had been diagnosed with diabetes and prescribed a regimen of exercise by her doctor. That was over thirty years ago, and although we have supported other causes over the years, juvenile diabetes has been a constant concern, dearest to the club's heart.

There are a lot of people running in Oconee, and lots of races and events going on -- I guess people just aren't interested in a club (or don't have time for it). I intend to keep the event calendar going on our website, and perhaps the blog too, as well as the facebook page. So, if someone you are helping with diabetes (or anyone else) is interested in doing a 5k, or maybe a half-marathon, you can send them there to find events and maybe other runners.
