Buy a JDRF Paper Sneaker at Walgreens and Omaha Steaks in July!

July 5, 2011

With our 2011 Walk to Cure Diabetes fast approaching (see Invite to Walk Kick-Off), small and large businesses across the country are supporting JDRF by hosting a Sneaker Sales Campaign which helps raise millions of dollars for diabetes research by simply selling paper sneakers to their customers when they check out!

This July, JDRF has teamed up with Walgreens and Omaha Steaks for a campaign from now until July 31, 2011. Visit these participating stores listed below and support these businesses and JDRF today!


 Walgreens strives to provide innovative pharmacy, health and wellness solutions and consumer goods and services in communities across the country. With over 7,000 locations in America, Walgreens is beginning their annual Paper Sneaker Campaign to support JDRF.

Visit one of the 668 Texas locations in July (or locations in other states during August) and support JDRF with a $1 donation. Purchase a 64-pack of Crayola Crayons and Walgreens will give $1 to JDRF!
