Golden sneakers are one of JDRF’s top honors. If you have one it means you individually raised $1,000 or more for type 1 diabetes research. What a wonderful conversation piece in your office for awareness of T1D or a proud reminder for your child in their room about the thousands of people that supported them that year. Whether you have been collecting them for years or new to the Walk, earning a golden sneaker is quite an achievement.
Our awards deadline is quickly approaching so if you are close to the $1,000 mark we encourage you to send out one last round of emails, hold an end of the year fundraiser or host a restaurant night. All monies counted to awards needs to be received by May 13th. JDRF needs your help in achieving our walk goals. Please visit your participant center to take your last step this walk season or feel free to make a general donation to the walk.
