TOPS Friendly Markets—a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and western Vermont—has been a valued JDRF partner for 26 years. The company is also the originator of the well-loved JDRF Paper Sneaker, which it created in 1993 to raise money for our Western New York Chapter. The sneaker became the symbol for JDRF One Walk® and the focus of nationwide campaigns by local and national JDRF partners, which collectively now raise more than $10 million a year for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
TOPS Friendly Markets also encourages employees to support JDRF through:
- Participating in fundraising events throughout the year
- Volunteering at local JDRF events
- Taking part in local company JDRF One Walk teams
We thank TOPS Friendly Markets for all they do to help JDRF create a world without T1D.
