On April 28th, CRi joined the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in the fight to cure juvenile diabetes by participating in the JDRF Walk in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. CRi was a corporate sponsor for the Walk and also sponsored a CRi Walk Team. Fifteen team members walked for the cause and raised $1,250. CRi has been a corporate sponsor of the JDRF Walk for 18 years.
The Sioux Falls JDRF One Walk is a fun, family-friendly event where dedicated walkers, volunteers and sponsors raise money to make living with T1D safer and healthier until it is no longer a threat.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. To accomplish this, JDRF has invested more than $2 billion in research funding since our inception. We are an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. We collaborate with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our staff and volunteers throughout the United States and our six international affiliates are dedicated to advocacy, community engagement and our vision of a world without T1D.
