Mother Nature may not have cooperated with the weather for the 2012 Chilifest, but former Detroit Red Wings player, Kirt Maltby sure did.

Maltby was all smiles as he greeted fans Jan 28 at McMorran Place Auditorium.

According to Maltby, he chose this event because of proceeds benefiting the diabetics association. Maltby said he likes causes relating to kids.

“Anytime we can help the kids and bring awareness to diabetics, it’s a good thing,” said Maltby.

According to Andy Morris of Port Huron, he was diagnosed with diabetics at the age of 7.

“Having diabetics doesn’t affect doing the things I like,” said Morris.

Morris explained one of the challenges he faced is getting the word out to people about kids like him that deal with diabetics.

Eric Hiller of Port Huron agreed, saying he thought telling people about diabetics is one of the best ways to show people that diabetic patients  lead normal lives.

Hiller said anytime kids like us can still get the word out to others about the diabetics association, it is a good cause.
