2/17 Rockstar Row  

Founded in 2005, The Mission Project is a non-profit reminding our military that they're not alone. Volunteers from the organization write cards and notes, as well as assemble care packages, for those fighting for our country. They also hold a support group for active military and veterans the first Tuesday of every month. The peer-led gathering includes acupuncture, massage, and music therapy as ways to heal.  

2/10 Rockstar Row  

JDRF has led the search for a cure for T1D since our founding in 1970. In those days, people commonly called the disease “juvenile diabetes” because it was frequently diagnosed in, and strongly associated with, young children. Our organization began as the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Later, to emphasize exactly how we planned to end the disease, we added a word and became the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Today, we know an equal number of children and adults are diagnosed every day—approximately 110 people per day. Thanks to better therapies—which JDRF funding has been instrumental in developing and making available—people with T1D live longer and stay healthier while they await the cure.
