Here at Gerhard's Appliance, we are proud supporters of JDRF & One Walk. JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF hosts "One Walk", a family oriented & exciting event where dedicated volunteers, sponsors and of course walkers raise money for T1D.
But what is T1D? Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. The prognosis has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and T1D is not preventable. At the moment, there is no cure for this disease. SO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
You may not have a direct connection to T1D but all are welcomed at this event. If you would like donate or become a sponsor, we gladly offer you the option of supporting local community member, 9 year old Shane.
Shane loves sports, especially soccer! He is a bright, funny and energetic boy. Shane has lived with Type 1 diabetes since he was just 2 years old. He and many other children face the challenges of life with T1D, which involve a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease. Let's make a difference in Shane's life & the lives of countless other children & adults who suffer from T1D.
JOIN US TODAY & SUPPORT JDRF IN THE GOOD FIGHT!
