|Dedicated to finding a cure for Type 1
(Juvenile) diabetes, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF)
is the leading charitable funding organization and advocate of type 1 diabetes research
world-wide. It was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with type 1
diabetes, and has provided over $1 billion towards diabetes research
worldwide. The JDRF is the only major diabetes organization focused
exclusively on research.
The Walk to Cure Diabetes is the fastest growing fundraising event in the history of the JDRF. The walk is both a national and international effort, raising more than $94 million a year at more than 200 sites in the United States and dozens more in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe.
Each year more than 500,000 people walk to cure Diabetes - including representatives from more than 5,000 large corporations and local companies. Many walkers have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or know someone who does, so they have a personal stake in finding a cure. Walkers raise funds by asking friends, relatives and co-workers to sponsor them during the walk. Walk teams like Team Fuskie are a group of people who come together along with our sponsors to walk towards a common goal - finding a cure for diabetes.
If you think Diabetes is a problem that requires serious attention, please consider generously sponsoring Team Fuskie today!
