|There is no stopping Faye Dubensky was it comes to supporting research for type 1 diabetes. This year her Golf Tournament called the Sugar Shootout raised $13,000 towards the cure. Held at the University Club Faye’s team set to work for what would be a day of golf for JDRF, dinner, raffle prizes, and prize money for the winners. Pictured is Maria Hussey, JDRF accepting the check from Faye Dubensky as a donation for $13,000.

The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
