9/13/2013 Update - The 2013 Colorado Springs Walk to Cure Diabetes is still on! T1D doesn't take a break for the weather, and neither do we. It may be a little different than what we're used to, but we're still going to come out in a big way to celebrate all your efforts to fund research to find a cure for T1D.
The weather forecast looks promising for the Walk. It should be our first glimpse of sun in a few days, so we hope you'll join us.
Parking is available across the street from the America the Beautiful Park. We will have volunteers out directing parking traffic.
Please visit the Registration tent to check-in, turn in any cash or check donations and to receive your ticket for a 2013 Walk to Cure Diabetes t-shirt (if you've raised at least $100). We will also be taking donations by credit card.
When you stop by Registration, you can purchase a JDRF bracelet and a chance to win 4 tickets to the Air Force vs. Notre Dame football game on Saturday, October 26, 2013 for $10. Cash/Check/Credit Cards Accepted. Entries should be filled out and turned in at the JDRF booth.
Lunch is being provided by the four Colorado Springs Schlotzsky's locations. Each walker can receive a bagged lunch with one of their small The Original sandwiches, a bag of chips and a cookie. A limited number of Gluten Free options are available. Click here for nutritional information.
Lunch is free, but diabetes research is not.
Thank you so much to our local sponsors!
JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is Making Footprints Around the Nation!
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to digestion. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.
Thank you for your support of the JDRF Walk!
