Come out on Sunday, September 15, 2:00 p.m. at Byrd Park and join the McGeorge Toyota staff, customers, and families as we walk to help find a cure for diabetes. Not only is this walk for an exceptional cause, but it will also be fun for you and your whole family. For every person who registers to participate in the walk will receive a free "Team McGeorge Cares" T-shirt and we will make a $50 dollar donation in your name to JDRF.
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to digestion. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps the organization continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while the organization works towards a cure.
