Allen's goal is to eliminate those shots by supporting cure-focused diabetes research.
"My family and I are excited to be co-chairing this special event with the Holtz family to support the important work of JDRF and DRIF," said Allen.

Managing this disease is a full-time role that affects the entire family. By supporting critical research, our goal is for all people to know a world without type 1 diabetes."
