Desert Southwest Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is preparing for the 11th Annual Walk to Cure Diabetes, presented by GoDaddy.com, on Saturday, Oct. 30, at Tempe Town Lake, 80 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe.

JDRF's Phoenix Walk to Cure Diabetes stands as the largest family-friendly walk in the Valley and will feature a circus-theme this year.

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The funds raised at the walk go directly to diabetes research - the more money raised, the more research is funded and the closer we come to finding a cure.

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. The 5K walk begins at 9 a.m., followed by a shorter, 1.5 mile walk at 9:15 a.m. for kids and people with disabilities. A host of post-walk activities, food and live entertainment will continue until 2 p.m.

The event is open to all ages, and leashed dogs are welcome. Although a minimum of $100 raised for each walker is encouraged, all donations are appreciated.

To register as a team or as an individual, visit walk.jdrf.org. For more information, contact Ashley at abenedetto@jdrf.org or (602) 224-1822 or call the Walk hotline at 602-224-1840
