Prism Hotels & Resorts is proud of its community involvement and support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. As many as three million Americans may have type 1diabetes, and the Prism Hotels & Resorts family is personally affected by this disease.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is the largest charitable supporter of type 1 diabetes.
The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes & its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin injections multiple times or use a pump – each day, every day of their lives.
Prism is working hard as a hotel and home office team to reach our goal of raising $150,000 this year. We are passionate about our advocacy efforts in spreading the word, fighting for a cure, and improving lives of all those affected by type 1 diabetes. In addition, Prism is passionate about bringing our team together to make a difference for others.
