Pella Corp. president and CEO Pat Meyer takes part in the Greater Iowa JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes opening ceremonies with Tanner Bordenaro, son of Pella Corp. Carroll (Iowa) operations team member Tom Bordenaro.

Pella Windows and Doors is working with the Knoxville Raceway to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The two will host a “racing to a cure for diabetes night” June 2 at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, which will offer fast-paced sprint car racing action.

For each $15 adult general admission purchased that night with the Pella Corp./JDRF coupon, the raceway will donate $5 to the Greater Iowa JDRF Chapter to help fund type 1 diabetes research. Those adults using the Pella Corp./JDRF coupon June 2 will also earn free admission that night for their toddlers and school-aged children.

The Pella Windows and Doors team has raised more than $1.8 million for JDRF since 2003 across the country.

“By dedicating our annual Pella Windows and Doors night at Knoxville Raceway to JDRF, we’re rallying race fans to help raise even more money for diabetes research,” said Pella activities team event organizer Troy VandeKamp.

This marks the first time Pella and the raceway have teamed up to raise money for the Greater Iowa Chapter of JDRF. In the event of a rainout June 2, the Pella/JDRF night rain date rolls to June 16.
