Mission Statement

JDRFI'S mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its' complications through the support of research.

Description

We are a non-profit fundraising organization. We work with children with Type 1 diabetes and their families. We have a 'Walk to Cure Diabetes' in May and a 'Hope to Cure Diabetes' gala in November. We have a support group for children and families 5 times a year. This is a great venue for parents to get support from other parents and for the kids to realize they are not alone. We also have a 'Bag of Hope' program for newly diagnosed families. The Bag has lots of helpful information, a meter and a bear, Rufus, who also has diabetes. Our Goal is to find a cure. For these children, insulin is more than a treatment, it's life support.
