Walk to Cure Diabetes<./b>
Walkers and donations are needed for DeKalb’s fund-raising efforts in support of the Atlanta 2012 Walk to Cure Diabetes on Oct. 20 in Centennial Olympic Park.
The three-mile walk, which is hosted by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, begins at 9:30 a.m.
Registration starts at 8.
Funds support research into Type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food.
The disease can strike in childhood, adolescence or adulthood and lasts a lifetime.
Thousands of Georgians are living with Type 1 diabetes.
The Centennial Olympic Park is at 265 Park Ave. West N.W. in Atlanta. To join DeKalb County’s team or make donations, visit www.jdrf.org and click on the About JDRF tab or contact Code Enforcement Officer Sandra Hines at 404-371-2484.
