Volunteer Spotlight-Gerri Leaman


Hannah's Troops

Gerri has been a tremendous volunteer with JDRF for many years. Her granddaughter Hannah has T1D and their Walk Team is one of our top fundraising families for the Orlando Walk!

“Gerri’s dedication and passion for JDRF is visible the moment you meet her. Whether she is helping in the office or speaking to local officials Gerri is committed to helping make a difference.  She is a true ambassador for JDRF!” stated Martin Bernstine, Executive Director

Gerri has dedicated her time and energy most recently to Government Relations Committee helping us get the Special Diabetes Bill renewed. This bill secures an additional $150 million for type 1 research every two years.  Gerri helps in the office with donor calls, kids walk follow-up, event day preparation, and attends walk day to assist in getting advocates signed up. We are so thankful for the many hours she has given to JDRF Central Florida Chapter.
