Thursday September 3, 2015, starting at 11:30 a.m.
The Urban Forest
They are organizing a corn roast as part of this fundraising effort and all profits will be donated to the JDRF, a non-profit organisation that is a global leader in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The JDRF’s objective is to progressively eliminate the impact of T1D in the lives of people affected by the disease until we live in a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with many partners and is the only organisation with the scientific resources, decisional influence on legislation and a specific work plan to enable the progression of innovative treatments from the lab to the community.
The JDRF is the biggest philanthropic funder of T1D research and finances over $568 million in research across 17 countries.
Location: The Urban Forest on Victoria street between Sherbrooke Street and Président-Kennedy Avenue.
In case of rain, the activity will take place on Friday September 11.
Not to be missed!
