JDRF One Walk has a single goal: creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). We hope you'll join us this year and help JDRF continue to fund life-changing research for the millions of children, adults and families affected by T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. That's why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks across the country every year to raise money for JDRF—the only global organization with a strategic research plan to end T1D. - JDRF.org
At Sequoia Real Estate, we love supporting causes that we believe in. This past weekends' JDRF Sponsorship was no exception. Our Realtors Sabrina Kwok, Sarah Smith, and Marketing Rep Holly Allen had a great time at the 2015 JDRF Walkathon on Sunday 10/26! Participants walked 3 miles to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, It was a great turnout, and over 400 people participated. We had a private area where we hosted a raffle and had a great time meeting the local community!
Congratulations to Ian Powell who was the lucky winner of our raffle!
