TEMECULA – Recently, the largest team of participants in the Temecula Valley Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) annual walk – the team from Pechanga Resort & Casino – put one foot in front of the other at a local minor league baseball stadium.

The team set out on their journey that morning to remember a fellow employee who one month earlier passed away from Type 1 diabetes, and to raise money for research to work toward eradicating the disease.

Dressed in their "Team Pechanga" T-shirts with a design of a bright blue sneaker in the upper left corner, 60 people pounded the dirt path around the stadium and helped Pechanga raise a total of $11,325 for JDRF.

The entire event raised more than $60,000. The turnout of walkers helped put Pechanga at the top 2014 regional sponsor spot. It was the first-place corporate team for fundraising, and third-place team overall.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding 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, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
