Boy Sells Special Lemonade To Raise Money For Diabetes Cure

Boy Sells Special Lemonade To Raise Money For Diabetes Cure
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

He is a little boy on a big mission.  Six-year-old River McKenzie is selling lemonade to cure diabetes.  And his sugar-free stand is only the beginning.

This weekend, River and his family will take part in a bike ride to raise even more money for research. 

The family is hoping for a cure because River was diagnosed with the disease a little more than a year ago.

"I keep myself healthy by checking my sugar and giving me sugar when I'm low," River said.

If you'd like a bottle of sugar-free lemonade, just look for the tie-dyed stand two blocks west of the VA hospital on Friday.
