Akron Soccer has chosen to support The Western New York Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation with their recycling program. You will see the gray barrels with the JDRF logo at the Akron Falls Sports Complex. These grey barrels are to be utilized to collect refundable cans and bottles. Each bottle collected will be recycled for $.06 and a generous anonymous donor has agreed to match all deposits. All funds raised will support the JDRF ‘One Walk’ Buffalo to Cure Diabetes.
Millions of people around the world live with type 1 Diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge, and strong industry research. JDRF funds research that transforms the lives of people with type 1 diabetes. JDRF continues to drive scientific progress that delivers new treatments and therapies that make day-to-day life with T1D easier, safer, and healthier.
Thank you for supporting this great cause and a great organization.
