On Saturday October 1st, a group of employees from the Memphis office volunteered to help with registration and accounting aspects at the JDRF One Walk, a one mile walk to raise money and awareness for the millions affected by Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). The walk was held at the newly redesigned Shelby Farms Park.
Many of the teams brought tents, chairs, and music to set-up in the center of the field at Shelby Farms Park where most of the excitement took place. One of the crowded favorites was the aerialists that performed after the walk, one of which was diagnosed with T1D at just 2 years old.
Members of #teamcbiz helped to check people in at the registration table and provide a welcoming attitude to many families that have children struggling with Type 1 Diabetes. The Memphis office's own, Vicki Bari, helped to calculate the overall money count for the 2016 JDRF One Walk. This year, the event raised over $460,000!
CBIZ & MHM Memphis is always proud to be a part of community events like this one. It is great to see many different people unite over making the world a better place, especially a place without Type 1 Diabetes.
