and a Cure for type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease which strikes in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, but lasts a lifetime. As many as 3 million Americans have type 1 diabetes. Approximately 80 people per day are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the U.S. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF is the leading funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes science. Since 1970, JDRF has funded more than $1.5 billion in research and is committed to improving the lives of people with diabetes today and in the future.

Toni & Tim Clark 2011 Hope Ball Honorees

Toni and Tim Clark are being honored this evening with the Liz and Kirk Watson Founders Award. This honor, first awarded at the JDRF Gala in 2002, was created to recognize the service and commitment of its recipients to make a difference in the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes. Believing strongly in the mission of JDRF, the Clark’s have generously given of their time, their talent and their personal treasure to influence the progress of research since their son, Bob, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 13 years ago at the age of nine. Toni has served the chapter in a number of meaningful and influential leadership roles as a Board member for the past six years including Board President, former Hope Ball chair and chair of Nominating and Major Gifts committees. She now sits on the National JDRF Major Gifts committee. Congratulations to the Clark family for their commitment to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.

Fund A Cure Join us in our quest for a cure through the unique giving opportunity of Fund A Cure. Immediately following the Live Auction, the room will be stilled and the story of hope will unfold; we call this special time Fund A Cure. During Fund A Cure, you will have the opportunity to donate directly to research and fund the science that will transform the lives of our friends and families living with type 1 diabetes. This year all proceeds from Fund A Cure will support one of JDRF’s most promising areas of research, the Beta Cell Therapies Program. Last year, JDRF directed $35 million to researchers working to restore the body’s insulin-producing ability and cure type 1 diabetes — either through the regeneration of insulin-producing cells or the replacement of beta cells. Your support of the Beta Cell Therapies Program through Fund A Cure will enable us to pursue our mission to find a cure for type 1 and its complications through the support of research. Fund A Cure works in the following manner: • Immediately following the Live Auction, the auctioneer will announce funding levels of $25,000, $10,000, $5,000, $2,500, $1,000, $500, $250 and $100 • When you hear the level or levels at which you wish to support Fund A Cure, raise your bid card and hold it in the air until the auctioneer acknowledges your number. • Please participate at the highest level possible to honor Toni & Tim Clark and Wendy’s/Pisces Foods. • Proceeds from your 100% tax-deductible Fund A Cure contribution will be directed to the Beta Cell Therapies Program in honor of Toni &Tim Clark and Wendy’s/Pisces Foods. • Many companies will match employee contributions to JDRF. Please check with your employer to see if your donation to JDRF can be matched, which will double your Fund A Cure commitment. Through the generosity of JDRF chapters and branches worldwide, Fund A Cure contributions since 1994 have totaled over $125 million.

Freedom from type 1 diabetes lies within your support! Thank you for your dedication to deliver the message of hope. 31
