Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) March 26, 2014

On April 5th, COMFORCE’s Tampa, Florida office will participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. The JDRF Walk seeks to raise money for critically needed type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

According to JDRF, “Type 1 diabetes 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 a lifelong dependence on injected insulin.”

By holding more than 200 Walks across the country every year, JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to end T1D. These Walks have raised more than $1 billion through the hard work and generosity of its supporters.

“The COMFORCE Tampa office is very excited to be participating in this important event,” said Jeff Burdette, Managing Director of the COMFORCE Tampa office. “It’s another way in which we support and stay involved with the community we serve. We’re proud to be involved with getting the word out about Type 1 diabetes.”

COMFORCE is committed to raising and donating at least $3,000 to JDRF. Our Tampa office’s team consists of 18 members who are seeking donations and will participate in the Walk at Tampa Bay Times Forum on April 5th.
