Members of Campus Faith Clubs join us in our Rockstar Row. Campus Faith Clubs (CFC) was founded in 2007 as a response to the number of students (over 80%) that fall away from their faith in middle school and high school.   By encouraging and equipping students to live out their faith Monday through Friday and not just Sunday morning or Wednesday night we teach the kids that their faith is something to embrace and to share and not something to hide or be ashamed of.  Today there are over 50 such clubs in the Metro and outstate areas with over 2000 students participating annually.  Our vision is a faith club in every public secondary school.

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.
