Opening Doors to a Cure at JDRF OneWalk in Winston-Salem, NC

Entrematic was pleased to support the Piedmont Triad chapter of the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) at their annual OneWalk on Saturday, October 22, 2016 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  JDRF initiatives aim to improve the lives of those with type 1 diabetes through research on treatments and, eventually, a cure.  The theme of the OneWalk was “make type one ‘type none!’”

Team Members at the Winston-Salem Support Center got together to raise money for the foundation.  Team “Opening Doors to a Cure” raised over $2,100 for type 1 diabetes research!  The team walked a 2.5 mile course around Wake Forest University’s BB&T Field complex.

Although it was a windy day, the weather was beautiful and lots of fun was had.  Check out the photos from the Winston-Salem JDRF OneWalk below!
