GLVR to Support Upcoming JDRF Walk in Allentown

The Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® is walking and raising money to end type 1 diabetes (T1D).

During his installation speech, 2018 President Sean LaSalle announced that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) would be a charity the Association would support during his presidency. Sean's wife, Patricia, has had a career as a diabetic educator and has raised awareness within their family about the children affected by this disease. It is a very difficult journey not only for the child, but also for parents and family members.

When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity just to stay alive.

With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.

We all know someone who suffers from this disease. And all of them benefit from this walk.

So, will you join us? Your fundraising or donation not only changes lives for people with T1D but joining JDRF One Walk will change your own life. The inspiration and fun you experience on that day will stick with you, and the pride you can take for your role will last a lifetime.
