JDRF One Walk – What to Expect
The State College JDRF One Walk will take place in spring 2016 (date TBD) at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park (the State College Spikes Stadium). Last year’s walk had around 350 participants, and we are hoping for even more this year! The Walk Route is approximately 1 mile out of the Spikes Stadium and around Beaver Stadium. Along with the walk itself, you can expect fun kids activities, entertainment, music, food and beverages, and the opportunity to meet other families in the State College area affected by Type 1 Diabetes.
