Uniting for JDRF: Fighting Type 1 Diabetes Together

This week at The Scout Guide of Northwest Arkansas, we’re shining a spotlight on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and their relentless efforts in the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D). From groundbreaking research to community advocacy, JDRF is leading the charge for life-changing breakthroughs.

Spotlight on JDRF: Driving Change

JDRF stands as a beacon of hope for those affected by T1D. Through research, advocacy, and community engagement, they’re making tangible strides in combating the disease and supporting individuals and families impacted by it.

One Party: Making an Impact

Join JDRF NWA for their annual Golf Tournament on May 31st and the One Party Gala on June 1st, 2024. These events aren’t just about fun and glamour—they’re opportunities to contribute directly to T1D research and support JDRF’s mission.

On the left, a close-up view of a neatly trimmed golf course green where a blue sponsor mat with the text "JDRF" lies near the hole with the flagstick bearing a green and white checkered flag. On the right, a black golf cart lavishly adorned with an array of colorful balloons, both transparent and solid-colored in blue, green, yellow, and white, is parked on the course. A sign with the "ONEflight" logo and text about a local event hangs on the cart, promoting The Scout Guide Greenville City Guide amidst the festive decoration.

Join the Cause: Together, We Can Make a Difference

Let’s rally together as a community to support JDRF and the fight against T1D. Every contribution, whether attending events or spreading awareness, brings us closer to a world without T1D. Together, let’s turn hope into action and make a lasting impact on our community.

In the spirit of The Scout Guide’s mission, let’s stand united with JDRF and show that Northwest Arkansas is committed to supporting those in need and driving positive change.
