Omaha-Council Bluffs JDRF One Walk Set for August 25

Join over 5,000 people to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) at this year’s JDRF One Walk (walk.jdrf.org/Omaha). The JDRF One Walk will take place on Saturday, August 25 at Lewis and Clark Landing starting at 8 a.m. This event has a single goal: creating a world without T1D.

T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. If you have T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. This means you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin from a pump and carefully monitor your eating and activity every single day.

There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure, but there is something you can do to help. Register for the JDRF One Walk event today at walk.jdrf.org/Omaha.

Immediately following the JDRF One Walk, go the Extra Mile at the walk after party in The Capitol District! Both events are family friendly and include games, food, entertainment, and much more.

Questions about this event can be directed to Chris Dunn, Development Manager, at (402) 397-CURE (2873) / cdunn@jdrf.org.
