JDRF Walk Saturday In Greenville

The 2010 Walk to Cure Diabetes is set for Saturday morning in Greenville.

The walk is sponsored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Check-in begins at 9:30 a.m. with the 5K walk starting at 11 :00 a.m. at the Greenville Convention Center.

The Walk to Cure Diabetes is a world-wide movement reaching into local communities to raise awareness as well as funds for type 1 Diabetes Research.

In March 2009, more than 1,500 residents of Greenville participated in the walk raising a record breaking $185,00 which will be used locally to fund research dedicated to finding a cure.

WITN is a proud sponsor of the walk.

    Thank you WITN for informing people about this. I have a friend whose 2 yr old was just diagnosed with diabetes. It will turn your life upside down. Anyone that can donate, please do so.
