Imagine a world without type 1 diabetes. A world where children (and parents) sleep through the night without fear. A day when an intelligent pump eliminates dangerous high and low blood sugars. A time when a single daily or weekly shot of insulin maintains tight blood sugar control with no carb counting. A life with no injections of insulin. The promise that no additional family members will develop type 1 diabetes. With your help, JDRF isn’t just imagining...we’re making it happen.
This year we recognize the wonderful fundraising success of our gala program, which has raised more than $3 million to date. Because of this success, we have funded world-class diabetes research that brings us closer to curing type 1 diabetes! Our event, which will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2016 on the grounds of the home of Dan & Carolyn Heard in Baton Rouge, promises to be the most exciting one yet!
Come and enjoy a silent auction, live auction, car and jewelry raffles, a live painting, and the most delicious food and drink provided by the best local restaurants!
Please contact us with any questions regarding this event or our mission. Thank you for helping us turn type one into type none!
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
