Schools Nationwide Invited to Join the JDRF Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes
Date:10/31/2013

NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As children across the country packed their school bags in preparation for the new school year, students with type 1 diabetes (T1D) left a little extra room among their school supplies for their lifeline: insulin.

Since 2007, students have raised awareness of the impact of T1D across the country and more than $18 million toward research to progressively remove the burden of T1D until it no longer exists. Last year, more than 800 schools participated in this growing program and raised nearly $4 million. JDRF makes organizing a Kids Walk easy by providing the tools and guidance needed each step of the way. The campaign begins with an educat
