It takes One Walk to fight T1D
The Young Leadership Committee (YLC) - NorCal is comprised of young local professionals dedicated to raising awareness and funds for JDRF. The committee hosts various fundraising, networking, and social events that attract hundreds of young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40.
Our team is walking to end type 1 diabetes (T1D).
When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life threatening.
With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope. And that’s why our team is supporting the JDRF One Walk this year.
Scientific advances are being turned into therapies that are changing the course of T1D. And together, we have the power to drive these therapies to market as quickly as we can.
We hope you will join our team or donate to our fundraising goal! Your support will fund life-changing breakthroughs and have a lasting impact on the millions of individuals living with this disease.
Thank you for your support.
