Bluegreen Vacations, a leading provider of Colorful Places to Play, is looking forward to participation in the JDRF 2012 Walk to Cure Diabetes. Bluegreen President and CEO John Maloney will once again serve as the Corporate Chairman for the event, which will take place Saturday, March 31 at the Mizner Amphitheater located in Mizner Park, Boca Raton, FL.
The national Walk to Cure Diabetes event brings together millions of individuals in support of finding a cure. In addition to serving as a corporate sponsor of the event, Bluegreen is committed to recruiting a team of 100 walkers and raising $50,000.
“I have been a supporter of JDRF efforts for years, and always look forward to serving as the Corporate Chairman for the Walk to Cure Diabetes,” explains Maloney. “This event brings together a great group of like-minded individuals from all walks of life. It’s important to know that Type 1 (TID) is being addressed and its cure is being aggressively tackled.”
“As the past years of Bluegreen participation in the Walk to Cure Diabetes have proven successful, we look forward to an equally, if not more, successful round in 2012.”
Approximately 21 million Americans are afflicted with diabetes, including millions of children. With the support of generous people and organizations, JDRF will continue its mission to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers, the organization is also the largest charitable supporter of the research. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share the same goal, including Bluegreen Corporation. Since its 1970 inception, JDRF has raised over $1.6 billion for diabetes research, which has helped to significantly advance the care of people with the affliction, and has expanded the critical scientific understanding of the disease. JDRF vows to continue raising funds and awareness for T1D until the disease is fully conquered.
