Tempe Town Lake will play host to the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes event put on by the JDRF on Saturday morning.
The event will feature a 5k walk, live entertainment, exhibitors, lunch, bounce house, face painting and other activities, as well as breakfast treats provided by Bashas’ Grocery Stores. The purpose of the event is to increase awareness about Type 1 Diabetes and raise funds for research — the goal is to raise $1 million.
The event begins at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 2, and it is open to people of all ages. More information is available by visiting JDRFDSW.org or calling (602) 224-1800.
