Joining the fight to find a cure for this disease has always been a mission close to the heart of Tim Herbert, founder of Herbert Financial Group. His younger brother John is one of the 366 million people suffering from juvenile diabetes and he has been battling this disease for years. Tim sees firsthand the trials and tribulations his brother must cope with each and every day to survive, including testing his blood sugar 6 or more times a day. He has chosen to walk for this amazing cause not only to support his brother, but to support the millions of children and adults affected by this incurable disease. Last year, the team raised over $5,500 for the foundation.
Herbert Financial Group is proud to announce their fifth annual partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Together our team is walking to help JDRF continue to fund life-changing type 1 diabetes(T1D) research and create a world without T1D. T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure—yet. Your support can help change that.
