JDRF Walks to Cure Diabetes 2011

The Greater New Haven chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has two upcoming walks as part of Walk to Cure Diabetes 2011, the largest fundraiser of the year.
JDRF will be walking on Sept. 25 at the Quinnipiac University North Haven campus and on Oct. 2, at McCook Point Park in Niantic.
These events promise family fun for all, complete with breakfast and lunch, as well as activities and crafts for kids of all ages, organizers said.
Most importantly, these walks will help raise funds for research that aims to find a cure for type 1 diabetes, a disease most often diagnosed in childhood that strikes suddenly, renders its sufferers insulin dependent for life, and can lead to deadly complications. People can join this walk as part of corporate or family teams, or as individual walkers.
