Why We Fundraise

Our event chair, Dr. McMahan, has a son, Jack, who was diagnosed 7 years ago with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 12.  Dr. McMahan says “Just in the time since Jack’s diagnosis, we have seen advances with pump technology, CGMs (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) and artificial pancreas research, thanks in great part to research funded by JDRF.  The work developed through this funding is helping to soften the impact of this life-threatening disease.”  This Ladies Night Out event will raise funds which will directly impact the lives of current and future Type 1 diabetics.


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 the largest charitable supporter of T1D research. The goal of JDRF is to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal.  Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more almost $2 billion to T1D research.
