On Saturday November 7th over 1,000 JDRF supporters from across southern Arizona attended the 2017 JDRF Community One Walk™! New and returning One Walk™ teams showed up to support someone they love living with T1D! JDRF is thrilled to announce we’ve exceeded our goal, having risen over $65,000 for T1D research and we haven’t stopped! You can still donate to a walker or walk team, by visiting walk.jdrf.org/Tucson.
Our thanks to local sponsors for making the event possible:
Sonora Quest Laboratories
Food Court Donors
JDRF would like to extend thanks to the local food truck vendors who joined the One Walk™ festivities: Baskin’ Robbins, Drew’s Dogs, GiGi’s Mexican Peruvian Fusion, Roadrunner Wood Fired Pizza, & Shaka’s Hawaiian Grill.
Lastly, our gratitude to the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event a success! Especially members of JDRF’s Southern Arizona Walk Committee, who gave countless hours to ensure the event was spectacular!
