The JDRF Metro Detroit & Southeast Michigan Chapter is proud and honored to have been selected as an Official Charity Partner for the Ann Arbor Marathon taking place on April 3, 2016!
JDRF raises funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). Your donation will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please donate in support of the Ann Arbor Marathon. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Thank you for your support!
