Walk to end Type 1 diabetes | Sep. 29

The Barrington and Libertyville offices invite you to join them when they team up in the JDRF One Walk (5K) on Sunday, September 29, to end Type 1 diabetes (T1D).

This autoimmune disease can strike at any time – just the way it did Barrington office administrator Karin Ferguson’s daughter, Lana, when she had just turned four in 2012.

With great care from what is now Lurie Children’s Hospital, Lana fortunately hasn’t missed a beat. Karin and her family worked through surprise, fear, anger and caution optimism to arrive at hope, but there is no cure for TD1. It is a serious, lifelong disease to be managed.

So please join these offices when they walk to raise funds for research and to make living with T1D healthier and safer until there is a cure!

 

Where: Independence Grove | 16400 West Buckley Road | Libertyville, IL 60048

Time: 8 am check-in | 9 am walk
