On Saturday, September 27th Ford Motor Credit employees will be walking as a part of the Ford Motor Company Team in the JDRF One Walk to cure diabetes at the Bicentennial Mall in Nashville, Tennessee.Ford is the largest corporate contributor to JDRF and is the organization’s only global sponsor, a prestigious honor the company holds in high esteem.Since its inception in 1998, the employee driven team known as the Ford Global Action Team has contributed $45 million directly to JDRF.No other company or organization has had a greater impact on JDRF funding than Ford.
Last year, the Nashville Business Center team raised over $74,000, which was $9,000 above our original goal and another record campaign.Results like this are not possible without the commitment of the Ford Credit team and the generosity of our dealer partners.Working together as ONE Ford, we were able to Go Further than anyone imagined.The dollars raised support research to cure, treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes, a disease that impacts millions of adults, teens, and children.
This year, the Nashville Business Center has set a goal to exceed last year’s results – we need your help and hope that you will join us!
Every year, JDRF funds millions of dollars in life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.This research has led to breakthroughs such as artificial pancreas systems and encapsulated beta cell therapies, both of which have moved into clinical trials.JDRF is uniquely positioned to advance these therapies through the pipeline and deliver on the promise to treat, and one day, prevent and cure T1D.As part of the Ford Family, we are proud of Ford’s association with JDRF and the impact we are making around the globe.
We sincerely hope that you will join us because together, we can turn Type One into Type None.
