Walk with over 5,000 people to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) at this year’s JDRF (jdrf.org/nebraskaiowa) One Walk on Sunday, October 1 at Mahoney State Park starting at 11:30 a.m. The One Walk aims to raise awareness for T1D and to fundraise to accelerate T1D research breakthroughs to cure, treat and prevent T1D and its complications.

T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. If you have T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. This means you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin from a pump and carefully monitor your eating and activity every single day.

By joining the JDRF One Walk, you’ll be part of the lasting footprint JDRF will make for the T1D community now, and for generations to come. Register for the One Walk today at walk.jdrf.org/lincoln!
