Community

Given his diagnosis as a diabetic, Edgar’s involvement with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is a natural fit. He has organized fundraisers for the foundation, once collaborating with his mother to organize a fundraiser for the JDRF at St. Mary’s Middle School in Maryland.
