The Village Shops on Venetian Bay: JDRF ONE Walk!!
The Village Shops were honored to be the location for the JDRF ONE walk again this year on December 2nd, 2017!
There was an outpouring of support from the community who came together to support JDRF.
Approximately 400 joined the effort at The Village Shops to stamp out Juvenile Diabetes. The Village Shops generously provided offsite parking and trolleys to accommodate the crowd.
JDRF One Walk has one goal: to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
When you participate in the JDRF One Walk, the money you raise supports life-changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. And everyone had a great time participating. That’s because they walked with a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to help turn Type One into Type None.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle – and it’s serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure.
This years One Walk was a huge success!! The Village Shops looks forward to being a part of such a great cause again next year.
