News: Sterling Insurance Group supports JDRF One Walk

By August 18, 2019 August 21st, 2019 News

“With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.”

Will you join us and help make a cure for type 1 diabetes a reality? Your fundraising or donation not only changes lives for people with T1D but will change your own life too.

Sterling Insurance Group is proud to support JDRF this season in a big way. JDRF, or Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, is a non-profit organization that funds research, advocates for policies that support new therapies, and provides a support network for everyone with Type 1. Their goal is to turn Type 1 diabetes into Type None diabetes.

Across all departments, the agency is raising funds to support research for Type 1 Diabetes. The agency has made it its mission to fundraise as much as possible for the JDRF One Walk, happening September 22nd in Detroit, Michigan. 

As of today – between the individual employee donations, selling of raffle tickets in our company raffle and the money we raised from our internal company garage sale – Sterling has raised $760 for JDRF! The agency continues to push its goal and raise more – by means of competitive Change Wars, bracelet sales and more. Thanks to everyone who has helped us with our mission thus far!

About T1D

Our team is walking to end type 1 diabetes (T1D).

When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity just to stay alive. Each year 40,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with T1D. And, less than one third of those with T1D are achieving target blood glucose levels—putting them at risk for complications.

As the JDRF website states: “With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.”

Join our cause

If you are moved to do so, please consider donating more to this non-profit on behalf of Sterling Insurance Group. Every cent counts. All contributions are greatly appreciated by everyone at Sterling, and especially those on our team with Type 1 Diabetes. Love to walk? Consider joining our team for the JDRF One Walk in Detroit, Michigan on September 22nd, 2019. Every year, there are close to 200 One Walks across the country and each walk brings in nearly 900,000 people who all want to make life, for people with Type 1 Diabetes, easier. Being that this cause is close to our hearts, Sterling has assembled a team to walk. We’d love to have you join us or support: learn more.

Will you join us and help make a cure a reality? Your fundraising or donation not only changes lives for people with T1D but will change your own life too. The inspiration and fun you experience on walk day will stick with you, and the pride you can take for your role will last a lifetime.

Thank you for your support.
