Registration Open for JDRF Lincoln One Walk
Mark your calendars for the 2018 JDRF Lincoln (walk.jdrf.org) One Walk on Sunday, September 23 at Haymarket Park presented by Nebraska Bank of Commerce and The Lee and Debbie Stuart Family Foundation! When you participate in the JDRF One Walk, the money you raise supports life-changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by type 1 diabetes (T1D). And, you’ll have a great time doing it! That’s because you’ll walk with a committed community that’s passionate about doing whatever it takes to turn Type One into Type None. Last year, over 4,000 dedicated participants raised over $295,000 in support of T1D research!
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. T1D strikes both children and adults. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. T1D comes on suddenly, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. There is nothing you can do to prevent it, and presently – nothing you can do to get rid of it.
The One Walk has one goal: To create a world without T1D. Help make a cure a reality and get registered now at walk.jdrf.org. For information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Lincoln and Greater Nebraska Chapter at (402) 484-8300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
