Featured Testimonial
"The NMD Foundation Golf Tournament is one of the most well-run golf tournaments I have ever played. Golfers from all walks of life play in the tournament - from police officers to doctors and lawyers to professional baseball and football players... it is a great opportunity to meet people and to network. While the competition for the trophy is stiff, no one leaves empty-handed. There are raffles, putting contests, long drive, closest to the pin, closest to the middle of the fairway, contests for men only, contests for women only, Hole-In-One for a Mercedes, and lots more! The sponsors are top notch. At the NMD Golf Tournament, you will eat like a king, play like a pro, leave with fabulous prizes and contribute to the most worthwhile philanthropy in the country in an effort to rid the world of diabetes. I can’t wait for next year!"

Walking towards the Cure

JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is now the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF's research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D).

The Walk to Cure Diabetes is JDRF’s largest community fundraiser, bringing together nearly one million participants across the U.S. annually. In 2010, walkers raised $73 million nationally, almost half of JDRF’s total public contributions for the year!

It is also fun! The Walk draws friends, family members and coworkers together in a healthy activity for a worthy cause. Join efforts with your community to make a real difference in the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes. It is a chance to take action and do something positive!

Riding On Insulin

Founded by professional snowboarder Sean Busby in 2004, Riding On Insulin was born out of Sean’s desire to give back to kids who inspired him to keep snowboarding after he was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 19. Sean read stories of kids and teens living with T1D through the JDRF Children’s Congress event online and figured that if they could do it, then surely so could he. Riding On Insulin, which specializes in ski and snowboard camps for kids and teens with T1D, empowers, activates and connects the global diabetes community through shared experiences and action sports. In addition to establishing a comfortable environment, Riding On Insulin strives to help families explore new passions, challenge T1D and celebrate successes. Learn More by clicking here.

Not Dead Yet

Part memoir, part sports adventure, Not Dead Yet tells the inspirational story of Phil Southerland’s battle with Type 1 diabetes and how from diagnosis to sheer determination, Phil Southerland beat all odds and turned his diagnosis and his passion for cycling into a platform. From leading a Race Across America to now managing a world-class cycling program, his journey on and off the bike is changing the way the world views diabetes.

Not Dead Yet is Phil’s powerful story: his account of his relationship with his mother, and how she struggled to keep him alive; growing up quickly in the New-Old South of the 1990s, learning at the tender age of 6 years old how to

check his glucose and give himself injections; of how he fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional athlete using his team and the bike as a platform, inspiring thousands of individuals and families around the world who are battling diabetes to not just chase, but catch, their dreams.
