Date:6/24/2009

SINGER NICK JONAS AND BOXING LEGEND SUGAR RAY LEONARD TO JOIN

NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, June 24, 2009, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's International Chairman Mary Tyler Moore will lead a panel before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to request federal funding for diabetes research and remind Congress about the urgent need for a cure for the disease. Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, boxing legend and Olympic champion Sugar Ray Leonard, and Dr. Griffin Rodgers, Director of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) will join Ms. Moore and a select group of children - all with type 1 diabetes - in a Senate hearing, "Type 1 Diabetes Research: Real Progress and Real Hope for a Cure."

It will take place in the Senate Dirksen Building, Room 106 at 9:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. ET in Washington, D.C. The hearing, led by Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), is part of JDRF's Children's Congress, the largest grassroots advocacy event held in support of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Professional figures with diabetes, including renowned concert musician Alisa Weilerstein, Miss Black USA 2007 Kalilah Allen-Harris, and NFL player Jared Allen of the Minnesota Vikings were also on hand to share inspirational stories in a Town Hall session with the kids.

The 150 child delegates also performed the theme song "Promise to Remember Me" with singer Jane Adams, Academy Award-nominated film composer and producer of "Promise to Remember Me" song Alan Silvestri, Mary Tyler Moore, and ESPN broadcaster Brian Kenny in front of Capitol Hill.

JDRF was founded in 1970 by the parents of children with juvenile diabetes. It has provided more than $1 billion to diabetes research worldwide. For more information, please visit www.jdrf.org.
