For the seventh year, Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett’s Marching 4 McFaull team participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) One Walk. JDRF supports the best researchers doing the most promising, cutting-edge science to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D). Due to COVID and Hurricane Ida disruptions, JDRF took a new approach to this year’s One Walk, offering virtual and in-person options. MBLB’s One Walk – Your Walk, Your Way event was held Saturday, November 6, 2021.
This year, Marching 4 McFaull raised nearly $10,000 for JDRF. The firm formally adopted JDRF as the firm’s philanthropic charity several years ago and matches the funds raised by our team.
MBLB started participating in the JDRF One Walk as a tribute to our colleague, Jordan McFaull, who passed away from Type 1 Diabetes in 2015. Jordan, who was a graduate of Tulane University and Loyola University College of Law, joined MBLB after passing the bar in 2014. He was an industrious and resourceful attorney and a cheerful addition to our firm. He is missed by everyone with whom he worked.
MBLB’s Commitment to JDRF
MBLB believes strongly in JDRF’s mission to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Our team participates in the JDRF One Walk every year as a way to help JDRF continue to fund life-changing T1D research. The goal is to help create a world without T1D. T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure—yet.
