MBLB’s Marching 4 McFaull Team Raises $14,074 for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

MBLB Marching 4 McFaull JDRF One Walk 2019 teamMouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett’s walk team, Marching 4 McFaull, joined the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) One Walk 2019 in Audubon Park on a beautiful Saturday morning on the 9th of November.

Jordan McFaull JDRF One Walk signFive years ago, MBLB started participating in the JDRF One Walk as a tribute to our forever colleague, Jordan McFaull, who passed away from Type 1 Diabetes in 2015. Marching 4 McFaull continued its efforts to help the organization raise money for a cure and create a world without Type 1 Diabetes.

Our team, lead by Simone Yoder, set out with a goal of raising $12,000. With 92 contributors, we were able to exceed our goal and donate $14,074 to the cause. Of the 91 teams who joined the walk, Marching for McFaull was the number one donor and also took home first place in the corporate t-shirt contest. Overall, the event had 631 participants and raised $199,513 for Juvenile Diabetes.

MBLB has formally adopted JDRF as the firm’s philanthropic charity.


Jordan McFaull, who was a graduate of Tulane University and Loyola University College of Law, joined MBLB after passing the bar in 2014. He passed away unexpectedly in 2015 as a result of complications from Type 1 Diabetes. Jordan was an industrious and resourceful attorney and a cheerful addition to our firm. He is missed by everyone with whom he worked.


As Jordan’s father, Rod McFaull, wrote to us after the 2016 One Walk,

“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.”

Thank you to everyone who supported the cause and our friend, Jordan!
