Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Golden Image Enterprises is partnering with Darren Kavinoky as he Runs Across America raising awareness of health and wellness issues facing our world today. One of our initiatives during this 90 day run is diabetes. GIE is fundraising for JDRF because we believe in their vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
