Organizations that help people afford insulin


(Patrick) #1

Hey all,

I’m planning on running the Charlottesville Marathon in the spring and want to raise awareness and money for a diabetes-related cause. I know diabetes research has a lot of money going toward it, so I wanted to look for an organization that helps subsidize the cost of insulin for families/people without healthcare or sufficient funds to purchase enough insulin. Do you know of any organizations that do this type of work or have you had experience with this type of fundraising?

Thanks!

Regarding affordable insulin advocacy.

Good luck on your marathon
