Larry the Cable Guy and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Ring the NASDAQ Opening Bell.
February 21, 2008 - Larry the Cable Guy and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
About this Marketsite Event:
Mania Boyder, Executive Director of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and Larry the Cable Guy, long-time supporter of the JDRF, preside over the NASDAQ opening bell.
JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is a disease which strikes children suddenly and requires multiple injections of insulin daily or a continuous infusion of insulin through a pump. Insulin, however, is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.
Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.16 billion to diabetes research, including more than $137 million in FY2007. In FY2007, the Foundation funded 700 centers, grants and fellowships in 20 countries.
