It was a sea of Carolina blue at Thalian Hall Tuesday morning for a gathering of the Junior Diabetes Association of Wilmington.

The group welcomed UNC Basketball Coach Roy Williams as their guest speaker. He cooled his heels from coaching to speak about diabetes.

The theme for today’s speech was every day heroes. Coach Williams gave the group a pep talk to get them ready for their upcoming Walk to Cure Diabetes. He also talked to us about life for the defending national champion Tar Heels without Tyler Hansbrough.

“Hopefully everybody will pull together as a team just like this juvenile diabetes foundation group will do that and it’s been a fun time talking to them this morning,” William said.

UNC’s basketball season starts with its first practice Friday night.

The Walk to Cure Diabetes is October 24th at the Mayfaire Town Center. For more information, call (910) 509-9899.
