Saturday, Nov. 2 at Greensboro Country Park over a thousand people walked in the JDRF Greensboro One Walk to raise money to find a cure for diabetes.
The walk raised over $300,000 which is fitting number because this walk unlike previous walks had three chairs. Lane Schiffman, Kelly Harrill and Jay Harris who were high school friends and joined together some 40 years later to raise money to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
