This year the Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes benefiting JDRF raised almost $90,000 in the fight against diabetes.

The money will be used to fund life-changing T1D research through the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and its Canadian Clinical Trial Network.

“We are consistently, steadily making progress in pursuit of a cure for type one diabetes. We are fundraising so that we can continue to push these advances forward,” says Shannon Jolley, manager of fundraising and development, at the JDRF in the Okanagan and Kootenays.

“Thanks to events such as the Sun Life Walk, JDRF is currently funding more than 50 human clinical trials, several of which are in the advanced stages of clinical testing.”
