For the eighth 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).
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.
After two years of the event being held virtually due to COVID and Hurricane Ida disruptions, this year’s New Orleans One Walk was held at Lafreniere Park in Metairie, Louisiana. It was a great success! United with other community members, local and corporate sponsors, and our families, friends, and furbabies, we helped to raise nearly $100,000 for TD1 research.
Thank you for your continued support to help us reach our team goal.
JDRF Advocates in Action Council
Next up for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is to continue to work with Congress to push for lowering the price of much-needed insulin and other benefits for diabetics.
JDRF Advocates have had an incredible impact on moving the ball forward for the T1D community. Advocates have secured billions in Federal funding for T1D research, influenced policy decisions to benefit people with T1D, and much more. Members of the AAC will take a leadership role in continuing this important work.
Your voice can help make a big difference by becoming an Advocate today!
MBLB’S COMMITMENT TO JDRF
MBLB has formally adopted the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as the firm’s philanthropic charity. 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.
