This year’s JDRF One Walk Northeast PA was the best yet! On Sunday, April 29, over 400 walkers—including family, corporate, and school teams—gathered at Stroudsburg High School football stadium for the start of a three-mile walk down West Main Street.
The weather was chilly, but the spirits of the walkers were warm. We hope you stopped by the JDRF Information/New Families tent to learn more about JDRF!
Special thanks to our sponsors:
Reach Cyber Charter School, Nardone Brothers Pizza, Essa Bank & Trust, and Halterman’s Toyota Scion
And to our exhibitors:
Omnipod, Rare Patient Voice, and PNC Bank
We also want to thank DJ Joe Franzo for providing music, the Joyful Noises for singing the National Anthem, Home Depot and Fancy Faces for the fun kid’s activities, Momento’s Pizzeria Restaurant for the delicious food, and Andrew Bird Photographer.
A big shout-out to our 18 V1Ps—walkers who individually raised $1,000 or more! They helped us reach 94 percent of our $96,390 goal by Walk Day, and we’re confident that our post-Walk fundraising over the next few weeks will help us achieve our goal. Fundraising is open until June 30, so keep the momentum going!
