Buy a JDRF Paper Sneaker at Walgreens in July!

June 29, 2012

With the 2012 Walk to Cure Diabetes fast approaching (watch next week for an Invite to the Walk Kick-Off Event), 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 for a campaign from now until July 31, 2012. 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 126 Dallas area locations or any store across the country in July and support JDRF with a $1 donation. Find your neighborhood Walgreens and support JDRF today!

How You Can Help

Visit one of these stores from now until July 31 to buy a sneaker and above all thank them for their participation in this valuable JDRF fundraising program. Let the Walgreens employees know how much you appreciate their incredible support and contribution to JDRF and diabetes research.
