We would like to welcome another new organization to the Christkindlmarket Des Moines Silent Auction, JDRF- Greater Iowa Chapter.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Since being founded in 1970, JDRF has made it their mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
JDRF Greater Iowa Chapter will be honoring “The Heroes of Type 1 Diabetes” with their tree decorated in shades of white and blue, JDRF’s signature color. The tree will feature photos of JDRF youth ambassadors – children who live with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and collector’s edition “Jolly Wrap Junior” Christopher Radko ornaments exclusively designed for JDRF.
