Date:3/4/2009

The 2009 Walk to Cure Diabetes will be held Saturday, October 17 at

Centennial Olympic Park

ATLANTA, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Georgia Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) has announced that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGa) President, Monye Connolly, will serve as the Corporate Chair for its annual, and largest, fundraising event, Walk to Cure Diabetes. The event is scheduled in Atlanta at Centennial Olympic Park on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009.

Last year's walk raised more than $1.5 million to fund research to help find a cure for diabetes.

"The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is firm in its commitment to finding a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. BCBSGa truly believes in JDRF and its mission, which supports our mission of improving the lives of the people we serve and the health of our communities," said Connolly.

"We look forward to working with Monye Connolly in the months to come to make the 2009 Walk our best one ever. As someone with type 1 diabetes myself, it is very gratifying to have the support of such a large, successful company in our relentless goal to find a cure for diabetes and its complications," said Kris Bagwell, JDRF Georgia Board President

As many as 3 million people in the U.S. are now living with type 1 diabetes. Each year more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with diabetes - that's 40 children per day. More than 85 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education.

Corporate sponsorships, corporate Walk Teams and Family Walk Teams will be the key to the success of the Walk to Cure Diabetes. For more information about JDRF, the critical research they fund and how you can help, call 404-420-5990, or visit www.jdrf.org.
