BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA — The Central Florida Chapter of JDRF invites anyone interested in forming a team for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to sign up your team.
The 5k walk on the beach starts at 9:30 a.m., and registration begins at 8 a.m.
JDRF’s mission is to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). The Walk for the Cure is JDRF’s biggest fundraiser in Central Florida.
The walk takes part on the beach in the hard sand, starting and ending at Lori Wilson Park.
Participants will enjoy snacks and drinks, as well as entertainment for the kids.
T1D is an autoimmune disease that impacts millions of people around the world. JDRF One Walk is the most powerful peer-to-peer fundraising program in the world for T1D, raising over 75 million annually.
Since 1992, the event has raised more than $1 billion dollars for life-changing T1D research—research that has led to breakthrough discoveries, many of which have already moved into clinical trials and real-world testing.
