Powerhouse has been a committed partner and sponsor of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Dallas since 2017. “JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.”
In this video is Reese, a JDRF Youth Ambassador who was diagnosed with T1D in November 2019 is thanking Powerhouse, her corporate sponsor. We’ve been happy to support this organization for the past 3 years. Watching Reese’s message brought tears to our eyes and reminds us why it’s so important to always be a helper.
Thank you, Reese, for your heartfelt message. We are more inspired than ever to #TurnType1intoTypeNone.
JDRF’s Vision sounds simple “a world without type 1 diabetes,” but their efforts are massive. “Type 1 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. At present, there is no cure.” JDRF has many advocacy and research efforts and a strong community with a mission to “improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.”

If you have T1D, you must constantly monitor your blood-sugar level, inject or infuse insulin through a pump, and carefully balance these insulin doses with your eating and activity throughout the day and night.
