Zoe's Team Destroy Diabetes JDRF One Walk
Organized by: Zoe Wardle
The JDRF One Walk helps change the future for everyone affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). 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. People with T1D must regularly monitor their blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance their doses with eating and daily activities. JDRF is funding research for new treatments that will make living with this disease easier and healthier—until there is a cure.
