JDRF’s Kids Walk Program offers the opportunity to educate, teach empathy and empower our school communities. JDRF’s Kids Walk program provides schools with a meaningful way to involve students in a philanthropic effort that emphasizes these “three E’s.” Here’s how:
Educate: JDRF’s Kids Walk program is all about educating students. Through our educational assemblies, students learn about both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and they are encouraged to share what they’ve learned with everyone at home.
Empathize: Learning about the daily challenges faced by people living with T1D teaches students to empathize. It creates an atmosphere of positive character building and community service in your school.
Empower: the JDRF Kids Walk program empowers even the youngest child to make a difference in the lives of those in their immediate community as well as the larger community.
Engaging students in service efforts that impact the everyday lives of others is a worthy initiative. Celebrate a new year and
