Walk Talk: Check Out Photos from Walk Day & Keep Fundraising

October 7, 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!

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 enter 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 Expressway, Suite 1201 – Dallas, TX 75231. All funds received by October 17, 2011 will be credited to your final team and individual totals and will be applied to your prize and award eligibility!

If you entered funds into your online Participant Center, please confirm with the chapter once you have turned in all funds and if any funds you entered need to be deleted from the system to ensure accurate records.

Please “walk the extra mile” to help JDRF get as close as possible to reaching its $1.6 million fundraising goal. Between now and four weeks post-Walk:

  • Submit your Walk funds to JDRF – 9400 N. Central Expressway, Suite 1201, Dallas, TX 75231
  • Collect any outstanding pledges and send to JDRF.
  • Make a final appeal for donations in person, in a letter, or by utilizing your Personal Page at Additional fundraising ideas can be found by clicking here.

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