The JDRF Receives $50,000
July 22 was a great day for Booster Juice President & CEO, Dale S. Wishewan as he presented a cheque to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for $50,000. The $50,000 was raised on Booster Juice's Customer Appreciation Day in which a portion of all sales was going to this great charity.
For over 40 years, JDRF has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, they have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology. But today, they realize that they are engaged in a process of curing T1D – that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And they recognize that a part of their mission must be to help those living with T1D today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until we all arrive at the end of that path.
