Fundraising

There are many ways people with and without diabetes can support the cause in fighting the disease.  The most effective way to show support is by donating money or participating in one of the many number of fundraising events that take place each year.

On Sunday, May 15th, Seattle had record-breaking rainfall.  That same day, the 29th Nordstrom Beat the Bridge fundraiser to beat diabetes went on without a hitch.   While the weather could have shunned people away, there was still a great turnout.  This particular event had 4 different activities to choose from for participants.  There was an 8k run, 4 mile family walk, one mile fun run and a diaper derby for toddlers.  The Nordstrom Beat the Bridge fundraiser is an annual event to help raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).  Diabetes is treatable but there is no cure.  JDRF provides education and research on finding a cure for diabetes.  People of all ages and walks of life were in attendance who helped raised close to a million dollars.
