We’re thrilled that many of you will be carrying the torch to help raise awareness of type 1 diabetes.Congratulations and thank you to all JDRF supporters who have let us know that they have been successful in becoming a torch bearer. If you have been selected but have not yet notified JDRF, please do so by contacting [email protected]. We’d like to spread the word about type 1 having its time in the spotlight.
