Both men urge fellow employees, as well as Atlanta area companies, to form corporate teams and participate in the three-mile Walk on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Centennial Olympic Park.
“The Walk is a great way to build a spirit of camaraderie and cooperation among employees while raising money for research to find better treatments, prevention and ultimately cure this unrelenting, chronic disease,” said Kampfe, whose 15-year-old daughter has type 1 diabetes.
“In Atlanta alone, an average of 35 children are unexpectedly diagnosed each month with type 1 diabetes,” said Womack. “In January of 2000, my son was one of those children. He is now a young adult who benefits daily from advancements JDRF helped support.”
