Bracelets dedicated to young Drumheller man supporting diabetes research

    A young Drumheller man who died before his time is being remembered through a bracelet reminding others to live life to the fullest.
    Jarrett Bosch passed away in his sleep on August 18, 2010, at the age of 18. The young man was community minded and was involved in scouts and music, and had a knack for computers. He graduated from St. Anthony’s School in 2009.
    He was also a type 1 diabetic and every year he would canvass for the Canadian Diabetes Association.
    Not long after Bosch passed away, his cousin Kelly Perratt and her family began a campaign selling bracelets in his memory and to raise funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association.
    The bracelets are simple. They are inscribed with Jarrett’s initials and the line ‘Live Life To The Fullest.’ A number of shops in Drumheller including Wal-Mart, Big Country Dental, The Chop Shop, Riverside Value Drug Mart and Badlands Choppers make the bracelets available.
    In about a year the campaign raised $1,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association.
    Last week Perratt presented the funds to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
