Walk was a great success

On June 24, an enthusiastic group of residents from Red Deer and area hosted the 2012 Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes. The event had more than 100 people coming together to raise money and awareness in the pursuit to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. This group has been raising money for 10 years, and this year’s event raised approximately $73,000!

Red Deer and community’s support is making a positive difference in the lives of over 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes. JDRF is continuing to make great strides in helping to develop drugs, therapeutics and accelerate the pace of research working towards a cure.

As a result of these and many other scientific advances, people with diabetes are living longer, healthier lives, with lower risks for life-threatening complications. JDRF continues to be the world’s largest charitable funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes research and sets the agenda for type 1 diabetes research worldwide.

Thank you for your support.
