JDRF One Walk – Saturday, May 21, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.
Kleiner Park located at 1900 N Records Ave, Meridian, ID
Rolling Hills Public Charter School (RHPCS) 5th graders are doing our annual Community Service Learning Project with the ONE WALK - for Junior Diabetes Research Foundation. As part of this project, students learn about T1D and work on lessons and take steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us?
