The JDRF is a charity which Hill has a special connection. He explains, “I was diagnosed later in life with type 1 diabetes, so the charity this tournament is supporting is very close to my heart. I understand the challenges of the day to day life that you face with diabetes and I want to show kids that you can play sports and have an active lifestyle no matter what challenges you face.”
