Walk Talk: Thanks for joining us at the 2011 Walk to Cure Diabetes!

September 27, 2011

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Greater Dallas Chapter’s 2011 Walk to Cure Diabetes and for making both Walks a great success! We are grateful for each one of you and your continued support of JDRF!

Here at JDRF, we are extremely appreciative of everything that you do as a Walk supporter and we’re not the only ones who recognize how pivotal your role is in the fight against type 1 diabetes. Below is a message from Dr. Ann Marie Schmidt, Director of Diabetes Research at NYU Langone Medical Center, and a JDRF funded researcher.

Even though the Walk is over, keep up the fundraising! 

Continue to ask your friends and family to help support you in your efforts by making a donation online!

You can also submit cash or check donations into your Participant Center using the link on the right side of the Progress tab to make your fundraising thermometer reflect all money you have raised, and then mail those donations directly to the JDRF Dallas Chapter — 9400 N. Central Expwy, Suite 1201 – Dallas, TX 75231. (Before mailing, please mark donations as “entered online” and please avoid entering cash donations in small amounts to avoid confusion.) The deadline for turning in Walk money for award and incentive prize eligibility is October 14, 2011.

If you have questions about submitting donations, please call the JDRF Office at (214) 373-9808.

Incentive Prizes

Walkers raising over $200 or more are eligible to receive a prize from the prize catalog. If you choose to receive a JDRF Prize catalog, you should expect to receive it by mid-December.

Catalogs are not automatically sent to eligible walkers.

You must indicate your prize choice on your Walker Collection Envelope or in your Participant Center, and redeem your gift catalog. Ordering info will be sent with each gift catalog. Click here to browse the Prize Catalog options. The deadline for selecting your prize level is October 14th.

Say Cheese!
