Help us spread the word about Game Over, T1D! — a charity event happening August 13–22 to raise money to develop cures for type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops making insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is currently nothing you can do to prevent T1D, or to get rid of it.
JDRF Game2Give is an initiative within JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research. We’re joined by X Rocker and Limited Run Games, two companies with connections to T1D, to provide three awesome prizes for the Game Over, T1D! Giveaway: an X Rocker Cosmos Bed with LED Lighting, a Celeste Collector's Edition for Nintendo Switch, and an exclusive Game Over, T1D! LED mouse pad. Complete the steps below to help us spread the word, and one of these prizes could be yours!
