Last week marked our office's twelfth year participating in the annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk to Cure Diabetes. Our employee-run Community Involvement Committee kicked off our participation in the event with treats and a presentation from a local JDRF ambassador a few weeks prior. On Saturday, October 5th, our team split into two groups - walkers and counters. A number of our staff participated in the walk, while others led the accounting and registration tables, making sure all donations were properly counted and sorted. We are fortunate to have sponsored this great event. For more information on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, click here.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
