Woman receives award for 20 years of fundraising to send children with diabetes to camp
OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
If she's not at home or working, you'd probably find Anni Brandt on her motorcycle.
"I just love the freedom and wind in my face," said Brandt.
For two decades she used her biker's passion to raise money for children with diabetes.
"It doesn't go to someone writing a letter. It doesn't go to buy somebody a car. It actually goes to send a kid to camp," said Brandt.
Each year she held a motorcycle rodeo, among other fundraisers, all to help children pay for camp.
"It's just a lot easier talking with someone my age who has diabetes," said Morgan Sealy, who went to Camp Floyd Rogers with Brandt's scholarship.
Brandt's dedication to children like Morgan is why she is now a Jefferson Awards winner.
She says find your niche like she and her friends did, help someone else.
"That's what we're supposed to do," said Brandt.
