2020 Invitational Canceled

These unsettling times are affecting us all in many different ways. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, social distancing, and the continued impact on our Agency and the community, we have canceled the 2020 Jack Rua Invitational. Staff will seek ways to engage the Camp Jack campers this year in some fun activities that are in line with CDC guidelines until they can safely come together once again.

Please like and watch our Camp Jack Facebook page for updates and event notices. Stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming golfers, sponsors, donors, golfers, and friends to the Jack Rua Invitational in 2021!

The Jack Rua Invitational

The Jack Rua Invitational is in honor of Jack Rua, one of the founding partners of the Rua-Dumont-Audet Insurance Agencies. Jack was devoted to the development of the Diabetes Association, Inc. (DAI), and served as its president. In 2003, our community suffered a tremendous loss when Jack lost his life in an automobile accident. Because Jack’s spirit continues to inspire us, it is with great pleasure that we host the Jack Rua Invitational to benefit the Diabetes Association, Inc., a program of People Incorporated.

The Diabetes Association, Inc. fills a need in our community by providing services for people with diabetes and those that care for them. The DAI has responded to the need for information, support, education, and advocacy for more than 30 years. Additionally, the DAI sponsors Camp Jack, a specialized camp which runs for six weeks in July and August for kids ages 5-14 with Type 1 diabetes. Camp Jack is a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for children to actively learn and manage their Type 1 diabetes while making lifelong friends.

People Incorporated’s Diabetes Association, Inc. is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Education. The goal of the Diabetes Association is to improve the health and well-being of the communities that we serve by advancing diabetes prevention, early detection, education, and disease management.

With the support of the community, business leaders, and the friends of the Diabetes Association, Camp Jack, and People Incorporated, we can honor and continue the mission that Jack started so many years ago!
