JDRF One Walk in the Fight to Find a Cure for Type I Diabetes

This year's walk is Sunday, September 24th at Scheels Arena

FARGO, ND — KVRR is partnering with a group trying to find a cure for Type I diabetes.

We are a sponsor of this year’s JDRF “One Walk”.

Groups are raising money for research to find a cure and raise awareness of Type I diabetes.

April Stastny is a JDRF ambassador for the event.

She said Type I diabetes is a disease she has to focus on 24 hours a day, but she’s confident a cure will come someday, thanks in part to events like the “One Walk”.

“I just want everyone to know how hard and difficult it is,” Stastny said. “I think of the children. I’m an adult and I’m dealing with that, but the kids that have to deal with what I’m dealing with. I don’t want them to have to deal with that.”

This year’s walk is Sunday, September 24th at Scheels Arena.
