Orlando’s Women of the Year 2018

Orlando Magazine honors Dancing for Diabetes Founder, Elizabeth Forrest, as one of Orlando’s Women of the Year for 2018.  Women who are making a positive impact on the community.

From the Article:  They are educators, mentors, counselors, fund-raisers, business owners, and managers of organizations that help those in need. But most of all they are leaders, who step forward to help keep our community strong. Orlando magazine is proud to honor the 23 individuals pictured on these two pages as Women of the Year. We asked you, our readers, for nominees and you responded with a wealth of recommendations, along with details on how these women make a huge difference in the lives of countless people daily. Our congratulations—and thanks—to them all.

Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 10, Forrest wasn’t going to take the diagnosis lying down. A year later, she launched Dancing for Diabetes, whose mission is to “spread awareness through the art of dance to better educate the community, raise funds to find a cure, and inspire those with diabetes to live healthy and active lives,” she says.  “Dancing for Diabetes began as a neighborhood fundraiser in her parents’ driveway, but it has grown to feature hundreds of local dancers volunteering their talents to help raise funds for a cure. This past December, the show debuted at the Bob Carr Theater,” a nomination reads.

Forrest was nominated for the “courage she demonstrates daily as she battles her own body to stay alive, her dedication to spreading awareness about an extremely misunderstood disease, and the passion she radiates for an organization she designed to help people affected by Type 1 diabetes live their best life.” Forrest maintains a full-time job managing a law office while leading the nonprofit. The organization offers outreach events throughout the year as well as free dance classes to patients with Type 1 diabetes.  Read Full Article

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog
    post or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

    When some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she wishes to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a
    captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same
    blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with
    internet browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!

    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely
    confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!

    I think that everything said was very reasonable.
    However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?
    I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid,
    however what if you added a title that makes people desire
    more? I mean Orlando’s Women of the Year 2018 – Dancing for
    Diabetes is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
