Happy Giving Tuesday!! Today on the show we were joined by Melissa and Sasha from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Did you know November is National Diabetes Awareness Month? Through walks, fundraisers and donations, JDRF is able to fund type 1 diabetes research and advocate for regulation favorable to medical research, making it easier to market new medical devices.
Every little bit helps!
This time of year, diabetes is often confused with the flu since symptoms are similar. Click here for a list of symptoms to look out for if you or someone you know isn’t feeling well.
The JDRF crew is already gearing up for their biggest fundraising event of the year, the JDRF One Walk at Kings Island! When you participate in the JDRF One Walk, the money you raise supports life–changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. And, you’ll have a great time doing it! It will be held on June 1st of next year. Help them reach their monetary goal of 1 MILLION DOLLARS!
Since today is Giving Tuesday, your donation will DOUBLE the critical research for better treatments, preventions and ultimately, a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications. Thank you for your generous gift <3
