The JDRF One Walk drew a crowd of more than 3,500 to Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park on Sept. 28. 

The event, presented by Change Healthcare and Ford Motor Co., raised $875,000 and counting.

The JDRF One Walk has one goal to create a world without Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle – and it's serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing that can be done to prevent T1D, and there is currently no cure.

The money raised will support life-changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by the disease. The JDRF One Walk draws a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to help turn Type 1 into type none.

Next year’s JDRF One Walk will be Sept. 26 at Bicentennial Capitol

Mall State Park in Nashville.
