System Staff Council is leading a team in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, a family-oriented, 5K walk set for Sunday, Sept. 9, at Coors Field.
The council is committed to having a large team of walkers to raise at least $1,000 collectively. To reach the goal, walkers are invited to join the Walk to Cure Diabetes team, CU – Office of the President. All registered walkers will receive a University of Colorado walk T-shirt.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects many of us in different ways – sons or daughters, mothers or fathers, grandparents or ourselves. CU has much research grant work focusing on finding better treatments and a cure for diabetes.
To join the walk team, register online and click on “Join this Team.” Next, ask your family, friends and neighbors to sponsor you by making a contribution to JDRF, or to walk with you on our team. You may even fundraise online by logging in to your online Participant Center at www.walk.jdrf.org and creating a personal page to raise even more money. Finally, join our team at 9 a.m. Sept. 9 in the Coors Field parking lot as the team will “Walk to Cure Diabetes!”
