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. Settling into school routines for children with T1D also means informing their teachers, school nurses, and peers about the autoimmune disease that affects as many as three million Americans.

With step-by-step support from local JDRF chapters, schools across the country can educate their students and communities about T1D, and empower them to make a difference.

"The JDRF Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun and insightful event, bringing children together with their classmates, teachers, and communities to learn about a disease that may affect someone they know, or may know later in life," said Jennifer Mylock, JDRF's director of youth initiatives. "After learning about type 1 diabetes and what life is like with the disease, students will have a better understanding of the importance of research progress, and have the unique opportunity to take on an active role in advancing that progress through the funds they raise as a team."

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
