JDRF One Walk to End Type 1 Diabetes Aims for 1.6 Million Miles by November 1
JDRF (walk.jdrf.org/Omaha) is changing up its annual One Walk to end type 1 diabetes (T1D) this year, making it a national event with the biggest goal ever— walkers covering 1.6 miles for the 1.6 million Americans living with T1D and raising $50 million in honor of JDRF’s 50th year! This format is in place of holding walks on separate weekends across the country and having everyone walk “together” from wherever they are to form the biggest JDRF One Walk this community has ever seen between now and November 1.
JDRF One Walk has a single goal: To create a world without type 1 diabetes. When you participate in the One Walk, the money you raise supports life-changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. Plus, you’ll have a great time doing it, knowing that you’re walking “with” a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to live in a world without T1D.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research. Join them for the One Walk by registering today at walk.jdrf.org/Omaha. On T1Day (November 1), JDRF will count up all the miles and donations and come together virtually to celebrate stories, collective accomplishments, and recognize the 1.6 million people and counting for whom JDRF and supporters are changing the world.
