Roux has decided to join forces with the JDRF for the Walk To Cure Diabetes.
"If we're as close as I think we are, we just need a little more push and walks like this, raising money, raising money for that research," said Roux. "I feel hopeful that, if not my generation, in generations very soon, we're going to have this all figured out."
Roux said he hopes to inspire others with diabetes to keep chasing their dreams.
"I want to motivate people to keep fighting. Because we can do this. You can live a normal life, and we can find a cure," said Roux.
The Walk To Cure Diabetes is Sunday, September 23rd in Warren. Roux has organized a team to walk and wants as many viewers as possible to come join him.
