JDRF (jdrf.org/nebraskaiowa) is excited to announce the 2022 JDRF One Walk Event Chairs, Jan and Rod Doerr, Union Pacific. In addition, JDRF gratefully acknowledges Union Pacific as 2022 JDRF One Walk Presenting Sponsor.

The JDRF One Walk will be held on Sunday, October 2 at Mahoney State Park in Ashland, NE and aims to raise more than $750,000 to help fund critically needed type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

“Our decision in joining JDRF and chairing this year’s walk is directly associated with the incredible work JDRF is performing by funding the development of truly amazing therapeutics, technology, and scientific-based cures,” said Jan and Rod Doerr. “We are convinced our son Brady will see a day where T1D is history. Through our community efforts and JDRF’s deliberate focus on accelerating promising scientific developments, diabetes will soon be out matched. The cause is real, and the path forward is clear. Only with your help will we conquer T1D.”

The JDRF One Walk, organized by JDRF Nebraska-Iowa Chapter, brings together supporters from Omaha, Lincoln, Council Bluffs, and surrounding areas, including teams representing local businesses and families who share JDRF’s vision to create a world without T1D.
