Our annual Tee Up to
Cure Diabetes tournament is just around the corner. We hope by this
time you have received your Save the Date card and have marked Monday, November 5, 2012 on your calendar.
Every hour, type 1 diabetes strikes somebody. There is currently no cure. People with juvenile diabetes become insulin dependent for life and live everyday with the constant threat of devastating complications. With 40 years of passionate activism and over $1 billion raised in support of research, we are at a critical juncture. A cure is on the horizon, but between here and there lies the costliest, most demanding phase of our journey – the move to human clinical trials. JDRF remains focused, energized, creative and efficient. In a typical year, more than 80 percent of our expenditures directly support research and education about research. Join us at this year’s tournament and help us on this critical path. Be known as someone who helped find a cure for diabetes and its complications.
