This year, Julia’s Jokers took part in JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with other walkers across the country, as we tried to reach our goal of raising $90 million. It took place in Wilmington at Mayfare Town Center NC. Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and its making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
It was so much fun and we had a great turn out. It was a bit chilly this morning as we made or way from Swansboro to Wilmington around 7a.m. We had a car full and many more following us out there. It was a fun filled day with food, music from the Craig Woolard band, face painting, pumpkin painting, and more. Of course being out in the sun for half the day I ended up with a sunburn on my face. But all in all it was a great day. Here are a few pics from the event.
