Part of the estimated 5,000 walkers at JDRF Austin Chapter One Walk. Held on Sunday, 11/13/16, at the Tony Burger Center in Austin, TX.

In the spirit of reaching that goal, approximately 5,000 children, parents, brothers, sisters, grand-parents, cousins, uncles, aunts and co-workers came together (along with a few 4 legged friends) and walked the 5k to raise $620,000 for life-changing research for the millions affected by T1D.

The FIFTY 50 booth was represented by Beckie McCleery, Strategic Accounts Manager, and Albert Mendiola, FIFTY 50 Volunteer.

They answered questions about the monthly testing and insulin pump supply services and various T1D child lifestyle products offered by FIFTY 50.  Many current customers came by to say hello.  Their purchases not only provide their daily test and glucose control management.  But also contribute to the FIFTY 50 promise which is to donate 1/2 of our profits to diabetes research. Research to fund a cure!
