Southern Utah Walk for Diabetes

Christensen & Company participated with the JDRF Southern Utah Walk for Diabetes fundraising event during this year’s tax season. Our generous clients donated money, and for every dollar donated, Christensen & Company contributed another dollar. Each dollar donated was symbolized with a colorful paper sneaker on the wall. It was fun to see the wall fill up with sneakers. The “walk” itself was held on a bright and sunny Saturday. I invited my extended family to walk with us. One of my little nephews who walked with us that day was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He helped raise money for the cure, 5 months before he was diagnosed with diabetes! The walk eventually raised $47,000 to be put towards finding a cure for diabetes. Thank you to all of you who donated to that fundraising effort and to those who participated in the walk.
