Yesterday 12 of our people participated in various events in the JDRF Real Estate Games, an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Washington, DC area real estate community to benefit the JDRF Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Chapter.
Our team competed in traditional events like swimming and track and field, but also dominated in more unique events like metal chair racing and a toy pony relay. Held at American University, despite the gray skies, over 1,000 other members of the DC real estate community were also in attendance.
Founded in 1989 by Adam Singer, the JDRF Real Estate Games have raised over $5 million for Type 1 Diabetes Research. JDRF is the leading global organization funding TD1 research. JDRF's goal is to progressively remove the impact of Type 1 Diabetes from people's lives until we achieve a world without it. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure Type 1 Diabetes.
