JDRF Northwest Florida
2013 Walk to Cure Diabetes
Gather your team, put on your cape, and join JDRF for the 2013 Walk to Cure Diabetes, scheduled for April 20 at Tallahassee Community College. Check-in opens at 9 a.m., and the Walk will begin at 10 a.m. This year's Walk theme is "Superheroes on a T1D Mission," and it certainly will be a mighty event! Proceeds from the Walk will support JDRF's mission: to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications through the support of research.
In the past, we were fortunate to have received generous support from corporate partners, sponsors, families, and volunteers, and we plan to increase the momentum in 2013 by taking even greater steps toward a cure!
On event day, you'll want to stick around after the 3 mile or 2 mile Walk for fantastic entertainment, music, delicious food, and activities galore for the whole family… all completely donated!

TrialNet Screening for T1D
A SIMPLE BLOOD TEST COULD DETECT AN INCREASED RISK FOR TYPE 1 DIABETES UP TO 10 YEARS BEFORE SYMPTOMS APPEAR. Being tested is important because if you are at increased risk, you might be eligible to join research studies that are testing ways to prevent and delay
type 1 diabetes.
As part of an international research effort led by the National Institutes of Health, diabetes researchers at more than 150 TrialNet locations are offering this test to elligible family members of people with type 1 diabetes.
