Walk To Cure Diabetes

Each year, more than 500,000 people “walk for a cure” at 200 JDRF locations worldwide. Funds are raised by individual and team walkers obtaining donations from family and friends, corporate sponsorship and the sale of JDRF paper sneakers at retail outlets. Last year, JDRF’s Walk program raised $85 million worldwide to support diabetes research and research education.
