JDRF Real Estate Games
Thursday, June 6, 2019 at American University
The JDRF Real Estate Games is an annual fundraiser sponsored by the Washington DC area real estate community to benefit the JDRF Capital Chapter. In 2019, we celebrate the 30th Annual JDRF Real Estate Games. What began from humble beginnings is now the commercial real estate industry event of the year, bringing together over 130 companies and 2,500 participants. The JDRF Capital Chapter and members of the commercial real estate industry have joined together to prove that there is a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D). Since its establishment, the JDRF Real Estate Games has raised over $7 million for critical type 1 diabetes research.
There are individual and team sports including basketball, tennis, weight lifting, wrestling, golf, cornhole, track & field, swimming, lacrosse, softball, football, and volleyball as well as sillier events like an obstacle course, tug of war, minute to win it, office chair hockey and more!
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. T1D diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent it. And, at present, there is no cure. Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. Since our founding, we have aggressively raised awareness, raised or directed nearly $5 billion to researching a cure and supported the T1D community. We drive innovation, demand action and stand with everyone facing type 1. We are the organization that will turn Type One into Type None.
