The Memphis office of CBIZ MHM participated in the annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk to Cure Diabetes at Shelby Farms on October 5, 2013.
Our team was split into two groups - walkers and counters. We had a number of staff participate in the actual walk, as well as some who virtually completed it by donating online. We also had a team leading the accounting room where they made sure all donations were properly counted and sorted.
This year was our eleventh year to volunteer in the accounting room.
We are honored to also be sponsors of the JDRF Walk, which has raised $1 billion to date. These walks, hosted throughout the nation, help the organization to continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.
This year the Memphis office exceeded our goal and raised $2,695!
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. More than 80% of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research education.
More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. If you'd like to help JDRF reach their national goal for 2013, you can donate by clicking here.
