SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Thousands of San Diegans participated in the JDRF One Walk to Cure Type 1 diabetes in Balboa Park early Saturday morning.
The annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation 5K kicked off in Balboa Park at 6th and Laurel at 8:00 a.m. with opening remarks from CBS News 8's Carlo Cecchetto.
More than 3,500 walkers took steps to turn Type 1 Diabetes into Type NONE raising $594,000 (and still counting!) to fund research and better treatments.
JDRF currently funds more than $11 million in research in San Diego. The group also helps provide a support system for local families who are struggling with the disease.
