JDRF – Walk to Cure Diabetes

Join the Virginia Western team in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes at the Taubman Museum at noon on Sunday, September 28th. Our team goal is $1500 and we need your help to make that happen!

Together, we will turn Type One into Type None. Contact Josh Meyer or Tara Nepper to sign up or donate to our team: http://www2.jdrf.org/site/TR?team_id=159222&pg=team&fr_id=3930

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. That's why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks across the country every year to raise money for JDRF — the only global organization with a strategic research plan to end T1D.

The JDRF Walk has raised more than $1 billion through the hard work and generosity of supporters like you. Every dollar JDRF directs toward research comes from our donors. So, the more our walkers raise, the closer we get to reaching our goal of a world without T1D.

Did you know that Heart Disease is the number one killer of women and men in America? Stroke is the number four cause of death in the U.S. Heart Disease and stroke claim more lives than all cancers combined.

As a result of local American Heart Association fundraisers major medical breakthroughs such as CPR, anti-rejection drugs, angioplasty, drug-coated heart stents and hypothermia therapy have been discovered and help in saving lives.
