Meet Danny Zinn, our 2016 Fund A Cure speaker!
Zinn in an 8th grader from Montclair, NJ. He has been living with
diabetes since he was six and a half years old. He and his extended
family became active with JDRF almost as soon as Danny was diagnosed,
and they have raised money and awareness about diabetes through their
involvement with One Walk and the Dream Gala. Danny loves spending time

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
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. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
