Walgreens Raises More Than $1.4 Million in 2011 Campaign to Support Type 1 Diabetes Research
Date:1/26/2012

NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Walgreens, the nation's largest drugstore chain, and JDRF, the world's largest charitable funder of research toward curing, treating, and preventing type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications, today announced that Walgreens community-based programs helped raise more than $1.4 million in 2011 for JDRF causes. The year marked the 20th anniversary of Walgreens' partnership with JDRF to raise funds for research to put an end to the disease that affects as many as 3 million Americans.

During back-to-school season throughout the month of August, as part of the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment™, customers at more than 7,500 Walgreens stores could make donations of $1 or more at checkout. This effort alone raised more than $1.4 million for JDRF. Through Walgreens' Crayola Campaign, $1 from every Crayola Crayon 64-pack purchased at Walgreens in August benefited JDRF, raising an additional $20,000 for the charity.

"Walgreens is proud to support JDRF and we're thankful to our customers and employees who have helped raise more than $18 million toward type 1 diabetes efforts over the past 20 years," said John Gremer, director of community affairs for Walgreens. "Through the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment™, we aim to help improve people's everyday health through education and early detection of today's leading diseases—cancer, diabetes, and heart disease."

"JDRF is honored and grateful to have had longstanding support from Walgreens for two decades, and we look forward to continuing this partnership through the years," said Mania Boyder, executive vice president of development for JDRF. "Walgreens' efforts have made a tremendous impact in aiding our fight against type 1 diabetes. Their funding helps us to improve the lives of all people at all stages of type 1, and to progress research toward preventing, better treating, and ultimately curing the disease."
