Join more than 12,000 Valley residents and visitors on Saturday, April 29 to raise funds and awareness for type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the JDRF One Walk. Participants will walk a 5K (approx. 3 miles) to benefit the local JDRF chapter. Fun activities and donation drop off begins at 7:30AM and the walk starts at 9:00 AM at Sloan Park (Cubs Spring Training Stadium) - 2330 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa, Ariz. 85201.

After the Walk, kids are invited to run the bases and participants can enjoy live entertainment, food and beverages provided by Bashas’ Family of Stores, a kids zone area with activities for the whole family and a vendor village with loads of giveaways.
