Each year we work with registered charities to give back to the communities that have made us successful for the past 25 years. Working with the JDRF is a really easy choice. Click here for more T1D/JDRF info. Last year the Galaxy Motors JDRF team raised 2,570.00!

Fighting Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes needs research. In 2009 there were over 300,000 confirmed cases of Canadians with T1D! A report in 2016 estimated diabetes was prevalent in 3.5 million Canadians (9.2 %).

We don’t know the cause, but it’s thought that T1D triggers the immune system to attack and destroy the cells responsible for insulin production. We know it’s not based on eating too much sweets/sugar, and right now, type 1 diabetes is not preventable.

The JDRF (originally the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is an all ages research group that aims to advance research in prevention and curing type 1 diabetes. Since the 70s this global initiative has raised billions for T1D research and has directly contributed to solving some of the mysteries of this disease. There are currently 50 human trials for promising T1D therapies funded by the JDRF.

Treating the symptoms of this disease is very expensive and puts unwanted strain on our medical resources. By fundraising to fight T1D we’re actually working on saving future generations from ongoing suffering and expense!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We hope to see you there on the 30th!
