Walk to Cure Diabetes: October 29
October 17, 2006, Volume 53, No. 8

The 2006 American Diabetes Association’s Walk for Diabetes, held on October 1, was a huge success. We are happy to report that the weather cooperated and 14 of Penn’s family joined the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Team to help raise funds for Diabetes Research.

If you were unable to walk on October 1, the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Team will be walking again on Sunday, October 29 to help raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The 2006 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes will be held on the Ben Franklin Parkway. Registration opens at 9 a.m. at the base of the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps, and the walk begins at 10 a.m. Please bring your friends and family to walk with us, the day is family and kid friendly.

If you would like to register for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, you can:

1) Pick-up a registration form at the Rodebaugh Diabetes Center, 4th floor of Penn Tower.

2) Call or email Colleen Rotindo for information: (215) 898-3037, or crotindo@ben.dev.upenn.edu.
