Los Angeles’ Premier Car Rental Service SimplyRAC to Donate Percentage of Proceeds to JDRF
Date:9/25/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

SimplyRAC, Los Angeles’ premier car rental service today announced their support of JDRF to drive up funds to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes. As a show of support for JDRF, SimplyRAC will donate 3% of all time and mileage revenues to the organization when customers mention JDRF, in order to help to advance research efforts to cure, better treat, and ultimately prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D).

“Taking care of our customers’ needs is job number 1 for all of us at SimplyRAC,” said Ali Salman, owner of the Los Angeles-based car rental company. “We felt a natural extension of this philosophy of caring was to launch an initiative where we could help JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes,” he continued. “We are thrilled to help JDRF with SimplyRAC’s donation commitment through 2014.”

“JDRF is thrilled to have SimplyRAC join us in our efforts to discover, develop, and deliver advances that progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people’s lives until we achieve a world without it,” said Heather Moffitt, Development Manager for JDRF. “JDRF’s research programs are comprehensive and reflect our strategic plan to bring about a continuous flow of life-changing therapies until we can turn Type One into Type None.”

With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. People with T1D need to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin (with injections or an insulin pump) multiple times every day, and carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night. However, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, and even with that intensive care, a significant portion of the day is still spent with either high or low blood sugar, placing people with T1D at risk for devastating complications such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, and amputation.
