Event description

Description

Come join YLC at the JDRF San Francisco Walk for fun in the sun with our annual Walktoberfest Beer Garden! Tickets allow for entry and unlimited food and drinks inside the Walktoberfest area (21+ only).

All proceeds of this event will help the JDRF fund critical Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) research and create a world without T1D.

What is Type 1 Diabetes:
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes a person’s pancreas to stop producing insulin - a hormone essential for turning food into energy. If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity. People with T1D are also at risk for a whole slew of complications – like heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputation.

T1D may be invisible to the outside world but people living with this disease deal with its challenges 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. JDRF is an organization that is also working 24/7 to change this by funding research for better therapies and eventually a cure. Our hope is to make turn Type 1 into Type None.

Who We Are:
The YLC is a group within the JDRF San Francisco Chapter. Comprised of young professionals from San Francisco and the surrounding areas, members are dedicated to raising funds for JDRF and creating an awareness of type 1 diabetes in the community. The group hosts fundraising, networking, and support group events through the year; providing crucial support for individuals with T1D, as well as for research to find better treatments and a cure.
