The American Diabetes Association congratulates Bret Michaels on winning NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and raising $390,000 to further the Association’s movement to Stop Diabetes.
Bret, who has type 1 diabetes, chose the American Diabetes Association as his charity during this season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” The money that Bret has raised on the show will help support the American Diabetes Association, leading provider of diabetes camps.
“Nearly 24 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes and an additional 57 million are at risk,” said Larry Hausner, CEO, American Diabetes Association. “If current trends continue, one in three children will face a future with diabetes. We are proud of Bret’s win on the “Celebrity Apprentice” which will truly help the American Diabetes Association change the future of this disease.”
