Dallas ISD Learning Center Students & Faculty Raise Over $25,000 for JDRF!

July 1, 2011

The JDRF Greater Dallas Chapter would like to give a BIG thanks the Dallas ISD Southeast Learning Center students and faculty for raising over $25,000 for JDRF! We greatly appreciate their outstanding efforts and dedication in raising important funds for diabetes research!

You too can make a difference at your school and help make more research possible for JDRF!  Check out how additional schools in Greater Dallas and Waco have stepped up in finding a cure and get involved in JDRF’s School Walk Program TODAY!

It’s never too early to plan for the School Year!

 Why have a school walk?

  • Your school receives 10% of the money raised!
  • The majority of students & teachers know someone with diabetes.
  • We educate the students about diabetes, including playing a lunch box game to teach the children about counting carbs and portion control.
  • The presentation and walk take place during P.E., providing the opportunity to further discuss the importance of diet and exercise.
  • We do all the work, so there are no volunteers or teachers needed.
  • Kids earn fabulous prizes!

If you would like to learn more about how your school can make a difference, contact Dolores Johnson at dsjohnson@jdrf.org or visit the JDRF Dallas School Walk Page.

Attention all high school students! Get your current school or your previous elementary or middle school involved and receive community service hours! School Walks are a fun and easy way to earn hours! To learn more, please contact Dolores Johnson at dsjohnson@jdrf.org or (214) 764-6770.
