While this pandemic has brought much disruption and uncertainty to our world, some things will not change – our drive and commitment to a vision of creating a world without type one diabetes, and that this Fall, the Houston Gulf Coast Chapter’s JDRF One Walk will take place! Although we will not be able to gather together in large groups at Walk sites in Houston or the Woodlands, a reimagined Walk will NOT change that unity and commitment to finding a cure. From walking in your neighborhood park to virtually walking with friends and family around the world, your ability to “reimagine” One Walk this year is limitless. We realize that the One Walk has never been just about the tents, the music, the food or the activities at the Walk site. It is the unified spirit of the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community coming together as one force rallying for an end to T1D.
So, again this year, we will come together as T1D community to show support for one another, celebrate our unrelentless spirit, and raise critical funds for type one research put at risk due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Stay tuned for more details on our Walk, including ways to participate from wherever you are, planned incentives and challenges, fun experiences, and information on our participation in the first ever JDRF National Walk Day to be held on November 1, 2020.
Can we count on you to join with us and “walk” us closer to cures, prevention and better treatments? If so, click here to register for this year’s Houston Walk or here for The Woodlands Walk. Join with us to demonstrate that we are stronger together.
