The University of Virginia Center for Diabetes Technology partnered with local volunteers to plan the 2023 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Community One Walk in Charlottesville. Many people in the Charlottesville community and beyond have been touched by Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and we are working together to raise support to find a cure. The efforts made will fund scientific breakthroughs to make living with T1D easier to manage. For the first time in our history, there is a clear path to cures for T1D and our support will drive as many of these therapies to the market as quickly as possible.
