It was just announced that Nick will be the National Chair of JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes. Nick was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 13 years old and has since become a central figure behind the largest fundraising program for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Nick will help JDRF increase participation and fundraising in its annual Walks, held in more than 200 locations worldwide (Ever been to one? If so, we want to hear from you). Nearly 500,000 people took part in JDRF Walks last year, raising an estimated $75 million!
As the National Chair, Nick will attend events to support fundraising efforts as well as take part in promotional videos and television public service announcements.
Nick had to say this about the special duty, “As a person living day to day with diabetes and recognizing tremendous contribution the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation has done for our community, I couldn’t be more honored to serve as the National Chair for the Walk to Cure Diabetes.“
