There are a lot of opportunities for those that want to support the cure for diabetes through donations, volunteer work, or participating in a team fund raising group. Supporters that wish to donate can do so through the JDRF homepage, where they can be connected with nearly 30,000 participants, or they can donate to specific registered teams. All tax deductible donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation are appreciated, no matter how big or small. So find a walk location or make a donation to the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes, and be part of the solution to a nationwide epidemic.
According to the American Diabetes Association, there are 25.8 million children and adults in the United States that have diabetes. About 1 in every 400 children and adolescents have diabetes, which makes it difficult for them to lead normal lives and participate in the activities that define childhood. In addition to constantly monitoring the balance of food intake and insulin dosage, diabetes makes it challenging for children to participate in any kind of athletic activities. Diabetes also leads to other complications later in life such as increased risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, and blindness. Arlington Heights Ford encourages everyone to support the research to end this disease by supporting the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes. The money raised will help fund the necessary research to better treat and end diabetes.
Arlington Heights Ford is committed to supporting the community and its members, which is why they are encouraging their Chicagoland customers to do what they can to participate in the Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes. Together, a community can band together to help any worthy cause that makes it stronger, and Arlington Heights Ford encourages any opportunity to participate.
