To support the JDRF Nevada Chapter vision to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) Crazy Pita is thrilled to help raise funds and contribute to the charity’s overall goal of $545,000, which will help fund critically needed T1D research. All donations collected at Crazy Pita restaurants will go directly the JDRF Nevada Chapter and their Annual One Walk™ on Nov. 14 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. T1D strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, policy influence and a working plan to bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the community. As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF has invested nearly $2 billion in charitable research over the past 45 years. For more information, please visit JDRF.org
