Nearly 5,000 walkers participated in the 2019 JDRF One Walk to cure Type 1 diabetes.

This year, over $460,000 was raised to support research and initiatives to support finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Emcees Jennifer Florendo, of Las Vegas Woman magazine, and Tedd Florendo of 8 News Now set the tone for the day, which included kids activities, carnival games and more. Several vendors were available to share the latest in technologic advancements for diabetes and to help families navigate the disease.
