Campbell & Associates is supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation with a $1,000.00 donation to Charlotte’s JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes this weekend. We are supporting Team Andrew, a colleague’s son, whom suffers from this autoimmune disease. Juvenile Diabetes has affected family and friends of our staff as well. Because of our close connection with the issue, we have decided to support the organization for the 2nd year in a row.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to digestion. More than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults in the United States receive a diagnosis each year. That’s why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks nationally every year that connect walkers to an extensive community of families, volunteers, and donors who are committed to fighting this serious disease.

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes has raised $1 billion to date. Your generosity helps us continue to accelerate progress in T1D research and keep people with T1D healthy while we work towards a cure.  This year’s 5k walk in Charlotte is being held a Carowinds 14523 Carowinds Blvd 
Charlotte, NC.  We would love for anybody to come and support this cause by walking or become a virtual walker online here http://www2.jdrf.org/site/TR/Walk-NC/Chapter-Charlotte4482?fr_id=2134&pg=entry
