A junior at Olentangy High School, Cliff Kigar is an avid lacrosse player with an aptitude for science and math. Cliff Kigar is also active in his community. He supports the work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) through their Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Founded in 1970, the JDRF is dedicated to fighting Type 1 diabetes across the globe. Aside from the government, funds raised through JDRF are the second largest source of funding for Type 1 diabetes research.
A key element of the JDRF’s fundraising capacity is the Walk to Cure Diabetes program. Every year, walkers get together in the United States and around the world to walk individually or in teams to raise money for diabetes research. In the last decade alone, this fundraising program has raised over $1 billion.
