JDRF Northern Nevada is thrilled to recognize the Partners of McDonald Carano as our 2017 Vision Gala Honorees. Since its founding in 1949, McDonald Carano has emphasized giving back to their community as a core part of who they are. Whether it’s in conjunction with JDRF or one of the many other organizations they support, McDonald Carano has a longstanding history of community involvement. It speaks to who they are, in that many Partners at McDonald Carano are not only invested in JDRF’s cause professionally but personally as well. They are truly avid and long standing supporters of the JDRF cause and it is appropriate that we are recognizing them for our 20th Anniversary Vision Gala, as we continue to build a bright future for those living with type 1 diabetes in Northern Nevada and beyond.
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
