Walk Towards a Type 1 Diabetes-Free World
Former CFO/COO and partner of a national hedge fund platform, David Newmark enjoys pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors. Aside from his work in the financial industry, David Newmark is an avid supporter of charitable organizations like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
A leading agency that funds Type 1 diabetes research, JDRF aims to progressively relieve sufferers of the brunt of the disease until juvenile diabetes is totally eliminated through further research. The organization currently sponsors scientific research in 17 countries. To raise funds for this goal, JDRF organizes the Walk to Cure Diabetes.
A fun-filled event, the charity walk is held in different locations worldwide. In the 11 years since its inception, the walk raised more than $1 billion for JDRF’s noble cause. Participants come up with creative fundraising promotions. JDRF provides an online participation center to make it easier for organizers to ask the support of their friends and families.
