HOUSTON HURRICANE RELIEF TENT - presented by Goldman Sachs
Our thoughts are with our JDRF friends and family in the Gulf coast area who are coping with the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Please stop by our Houston Hurricane Relief Tent on the One Walk main lawn and drop off diabetic supplies, such as test strips, syringes, pen needles, alcohol pads and insulin. Insulin must be in date and kept refrigerated prior to bringing on Saturday morning. Also, we will have an art area where children can design cards to send along with the relief supplies. Thank you for your support.
Visit with our Resource Row partners and see the most up-to-date treatments in diabetes care as well as other helpful resources in our local community.
Family Fun for everyone! Spray paint your hair, apply JDRF themed tattoos, reach new heights in our bounce houses and race friends through the obstacle course!
