Walk To Cure Diabetes is the fastest growing fund raising event in the history of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Last year, nearly $86 million was raised through the Walk To Cure Diabetes to fund diabetes research. This year, the Walk To Cure Diabetes is expected to surpass $90 million.
In 2011, over 500,000 people “walked to cure diabetes” at one of 200 sites throughout the country. This year, men, women, and children – including those from over 5,000 large corporations and local companies – will participate at one of our 200 sites. Funds are raised as walkers ask friends, relatives and co-workers to sponsor them for participating in the Walk.
