JDRF Walk a Success!

JDRF Walk - MBLB

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the walk on Saturday!

MBLB did a wonderful fundraising job.  We raised $7,395.00 and came in second place overall for the New Orleans event.  We also took home the first place prize in the t-shirt contest!  Jordan’s family wanted to pass along how much they appreciated MBLB’s honoring of Jordan and support of the JDRF cause. The race would not have been possible without all of your efforts!

“As Jordan’s dad, I feel blessed that he worked for such a dedicated, caring firm. Diabetes is a devastating disease, much more than people realize. I am so thankful for the firm’s willingness to help defeat this terrible disease in Jordan’s name.  As the firm’s goal kept rising and being met and then surpassed again, I sensed Jordan’s spirit saying: “… press on, press on, and don’t stop.”*

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the firm for all their hard work in raising money to cure diabetes in Jordan’s name.

With kind regards,
Rod McFaull, Jordan’s dad
