Since its establishment, the JDRF Real Estate Games has raised more than $8 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. After tremendous success in both D.C. and New York City, the Games came to Chicago this spring.
The Chicago Games brought together more than 100 of the city’s top brokers, developers, property managers, and industry leaders to compete in a series of sporting events at one of Chicago’s finest gyms, FFC Union Station followed by a complimentary after-party to toast the winning team and distribute awards.
The 2018 Games raised more than $157,000 to support JDRF's mission of accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat T1D and its complications.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
