Join us at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk for Diabetes on Saturday, May 31, at the Cape Cod Fairgrounds in East Falmouth! Check-in starts at 9:30am and the walk begins at 10:30am!
The JDRF Walk is an impactful way to raise money for critically needed type 1 diabetes research and show your support for the millions of people affected by this serious disease.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
The JDRF Walk has raised more than $1 billion through the hard work and generosity of supporters like you. Every dollar JDRF directs toward research comes from our donors. So, the more our walkers raise, the closer we get to reaching our goal of a world without T1D.
