2016 JDRF Real Estate Games Recap

CRC CARES members participated in our second JDRF Real Estate Games, held Thursday, June 2 at American University in Washington, DC. The leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) has raised more than $5.5 million since its establishment in 1989.

Thanks to the popularity of last year’s event, our team expanded its presence in the games’ 27th year by participating in events such as doubles tennis, table tennis, corn hole, and a 5K (where we brought home first place). The day raised money for a great cause while providing a unique team-building opportunity for competitors. Much like last year, the enthusiasm for the event was not deterred by gray skies; CRC CARES members were joined by thousands of participants from the DC Real Estate community. 

Founded by Adam Singer and Rick Kimball, the JDRF Real Estate Games hosted its first annual event on July 20, 1990 at Gonzaga College High School. Twenty six years later, the event has grown exponentially with the support of more than 115 companies, 2,000 participants, and 200 volunteers raising more than $400,000 annually.
