Securis in the Community – Walking to Eliminate Type 1 Diabetes
Posted onMay 25th, 2016
Securis Sales VP Daniel Mattock recently participated in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. JDRF raises vital funds that power the global movement to help cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. If you have T1D, your pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. This means you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin from a pump and carefully monitor your eating and activity every single day.
The money that the Securis and Nova NPMA partnership raised (144% of our goal!) will go directly to support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease. We’re pleased to have joined JDRF to help achieve its goal of improving the lives of those affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The organization does so by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D.
With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure – yet. Support of JDRF can help change that. JDRF is the one organization with the plan, influence, and ability to lessen the burden of this disease until it no longer exists.
