Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. It’s onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is no cure. That’s where you can help!

Please join JDRF and local athletes as we cheer on the cure. Funds raised through cheerleading teams, sponsors & spectators will support research    efforts to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Please email jkisker@jdrf.org or call (716) 833-2873 for more information about team registration, sponsorship & vendor opportunities.
