JDRF One Walk in Roanoke raises funds for Type 1 diabetes research

ROANOKE, Va. – Hundreds came together in Roanoke Sunday to raise money to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. 

The JDRF One Walk not only raises money, but also celebrates people living with the disease. 

Organizers say, with 40,000 people diagnosed each year, the annual event is always growing. 

Both family and corporate teams joined the event. 

In the 25 years they have had the walk, Advanced Auto has raised more than $43 million nationwide. Organizers estimate they raised more than $250,000 Sunday.
