Inaugural Scavenger Hunt Launches in Support of Diabetes Research

TORONTO, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - This year marks the largest fundraising goal ever of reaching $8 million in total donations and pledges supporting the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes. It is expected that more than 45,000 people across Canada in over 70 communities will "Join the Community" in an effort to reach this monumental goal.

New this year, JDRF and TELUS are launching the first ever TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes Scavenger Hunt to encourage more Canadians to "Join the Community" by walking, pledging, fundraising or donating in support of diabetes research. It's time to dust off those sneakers and join the fun!
