    Step Challenge for 2014 Walk

We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page for the 7wire Ventures family! We are an energetic and talented group of individuals working across four different companies with focuses on Venture Capitalism (7wire Ventures), Healthcare (EosHealth & Zest Health), and Education (Digedu). 


Although there are many ties to JDRF, and diabetes in general, across our companies there is a very distinct connection with EosHealth; a chronic disease management company primarily focusing on Diabetes. 


We are very excited to bring our enthusiasm and dedication to our inaugural walk as a team and we are very thankful to all those who support us all year long!



We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.


Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.


The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.


Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.


Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
