We are extremely grateful to the Oakland A’s for their leadership and support of the JDRF One Walk, East Bay, this year! Catherine Aker, VP of Communications & Community, is serving as our Corporate Chair and Bob Melvin, Manager, is our Honorary Chair. The A’s hosted the East Bay Walk Kick Off before the game on August 20, with more than 300 participants in attendance! Click here to view photos.
“The A’s are proud to support the incredible work JDRF is doing in our community. Hearing Alexi Melvin and Kendall Layous speak at the JDRF One Walk kickoff event inspired us to do even more. Seeing their courage and smiles through such a difficult disease was incredibly moving. We feel honored to be part of the JDRF One Walk and are excited to provide additional motivation for Walk Teams and individual fund raisers,” says Catherine Aker, VP of Communications & Community, Oakland Athletics
