GVG the V1P Sponsor for JDRF OneWalk April 13

Grene Vision Group is the V1P Sponsor for the JDRF OneWalk event on Saturday, April 13 at Exploration Place in Wichita. JDRF OneWalk has a single goal: creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). This is GVG’s fourth year as an official sponsor for the event. The OneWalk fundraising goal is $213,750. Miss Kansas Hannah Klaassen will join us in the V1P tent.

Type 1 diabetes 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. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. That's why JDRF provides more than 200 walks across the country every year to raise money for JDRF—the only global organization with a strategic research plan to end T1D. Each year, JDRF One Walk brings together more than 900,000 people who raise funds for critical T1D research. This success is only possible because of the support, commitment and strength of our community.

There is NO CHARGE to participate in the event, however registration is appreciated. You can register to walk and raise funds by clicking Wichita JDRF OneWalk Registration.
