Adelphi Values supporting JDRF fundraiser
In October, our US team will be taking part in JDRF One Walk, to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Covering 5km around Boston, the JDRF flagship event aims to raise awareness of type1 diabetes (T1D), and funds toward achieving their mission, “to create a world without T1D”. 1.25 million Americans are currently living with T1D and the prevalence is increasing.
As our chosen US charity for 2016, we supported JDRF at the ISPOR conference in Washington DC earlier this year, and our team are looking forward to taking part in the walk and continuing our support of this worthy cause.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding T1D research and with a mission to “accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and its complications”, and currently funding more than 50 human clinical trials.
