Join JDRF as we Walk to Cure Diabetes!
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.
In 2013 the Pensacola Walk to Cure Diabetes had 600 participants who walked 3 miles in support of JDRF and the 3 million Americans living with type 1 diabetes. We hope you’ll join us in surpassing our $90,000 goal, and help us take one step closer to a cure by joining us for the 2014 Panhandle Walk to Cure Diabetes. This year our Walk route will begin/end in Seville Square, taking you along the water, then winding through the historic streets of beautiful downtown Pensacola. Be sure to stick around after the Walk for lots of food, entertainment, and family friendly activities!
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!
