JDRF One Walk
JDRF One Walk has a single goal: Creating a world without Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. T1 D causes the pancreas to stop producing insulin, a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Because of this, people living with T1 D must monitor their blood-sugar level, and inject or infuse insulin from a pump daily. There are currently no methods of prevention and there is no cure. When you join one of the hundreds of JDRF One Walks across the country, the money you raise will support JDRF - the leading global organization funding T1 D research. JDRF One Walk is a fun-filled celebration day for the fundraisers, featuring music, kids activities, and resources for families living with T1D.
