Time Warner Cable – Stepping Up for JDRF’s Walk

July 27, 2011

JDRF would like to thank Time Warner Cable for stepping up and helping us with our Walk to Cure Diabetes  this year as a media sponsor!

Just recently, JDRF Volunteer, Gary Warren, participated in an exclusive community service program that Time Warner Cable produces in the Dallas metropolitan area.

The program, called Time Warner Cable Community Connection, features interviews with community, non-profit, educational and civic organizations and appears on CNN Headline News at 55 minutes past the hour at selected hours throughout the day.

Gary’s son, James, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 9 years old.  Since his diagnosis the Warren Family have been dedicated JDRF volunteers in advancing our mission. James attended the interview with Gary for support and even got to hang out in the control room during the shoot. It was a wonderful experience! Gary’s interview promoting diabetes awareness and the JDRF Walk will start airing Tuesday, August 9, 2011, and will run multiple times throughout the day for 7 days on CNN Headline News at 55 minutes past the hour.

In addition to this interview, Time Warner Cable has also started airing JDRF’s 30 second PSA promoting the Walk to Cure Diabetes across all of their cable networks leading up to the event! On behalf of all of those living with diabetes, JDRF would like to thank Time Warner Cable for utilizing their state-of-the-art technology to bring awareness to JDRF, diabetes and our upcoming Walk to Cure Diabetes.
