It's All About/Juvenile Diabetes/Portland Oregon/Be Kind!

Get in touch with us through Portland is known by many names -- Stumptown, Bridge City, City of Roses and most recently, courtesy of Portlandia, "The Place Young People Go to Retire." Portland lives up to all these names and more. It has towering trees, gorgeous bridges crossing the Willamette, the scent of roses pervades the air in spring. And yes, there are a lot of 30-somethings in Portland, drawn to it by the relaxed atmosphere, the flourishing food culture, the microbreweries, the delicious coffee and the break from the rat race. Portland has all the amenities you would expect of a vibrant city -- good hotels and restaurants; plenty of museums. It also has miles and miles of parkland and forest trails within city limits, and is just an hour from the ocean and skiing at Mount Hood. Adventurers should check out Forest Park, the largest urban forest in the United States with more than 80 miles of trails. Museum-goers should stop at Portland Art Museum, which boasts works from masters like Van Gogh and Monet along with American, Modern, Native American and other genres of art. For families, a stop at the Oregon Zoo is a must -- they have tigers, lions, elephants, giraffes, bears and just about any other animal you and your children would want to see. Portland has dozens of unique neighborhoods, each with a very different feel. Portland's Pearl District is well-known for its high-end shopping and booming restaurant and bar scene. (Try Andina restaurant for an amazing take on Peruvian food; Fratelli for Italian.) In addition to a large shopping scene, the Pearl District also houses many art galleries and several museums, including the small but well-appointed Museum of Contemporary Craft. With boutique hotels and urban inns, you're sure to find a trendy place to stay. If you're traveling for business, downtown Portland has the widest range of options for hotels, including the larger chain hotels. Within downtown Portland are the Portland Art Museum, the Oregon Historical Society, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall (affectionately called "The Schnitz"), Powell's City of Books and the famous Voodoo Doughnuts. With Portland's large transit system, it is also an easy bus ride to nearly any location outside of downtown. Located further west of downtown Portland is the Nob Hill area, which includes "trendy third" - the area of Nob Hill extending along 23rd street. Many of Portland's top-rated restaurants are in this small neighborhood (you can't go wrong with Papa Haydn's extensive dessert menu or St. Jack's French fare). There is also plenty of fabulous shopping to be had in their small boutique stores - or at Moonstruck Chocolate. And it abuts Portland's Forest Park.

JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults—approximately 80 people per day—are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the U.S. If you, like most Americans, going to work, buy a cup of coffee, donate those $5 to JDRF, as donating just $5 you give hope to many T1D poor kids. JDRF donations can reduce your taxable income and lower your tax bill. When you're helping someone, you're not only bettering their lives, you also improve your own If you live with T1D, you spend a lot of time thinking about your blood-sugar levels now and worrying about the complications that T1D may one day bring. You don’t want anyone else you love to ever know the physical, emotional and financial toll this disease takes. You want a cure. So does JDRF. And we are committed to funding the development of new therapies and treatments to keep people with T1D healthier, longer, until that cure is found. That’s why we invest in multiple therapeutic approaches to cure, prevent and treat T1D. We identify and invest in promising therapies in their early stages, helping researchers pursue innovative ideas and approaches. Health Care and Social Assistance comprises establishments primarily engaged in providing health care by diagnosis and treatment, providing residential care for medical and social reasons, and providing social assistance, such as counselling, welfare, child protection, community housing and food services, vocational rehabilitation and child care, to those requiring such assistance. Multiply the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) by the hours of sleep lost, finger pricks, insulin injections and pump site changes necessary to manage this disease, and it is clear — T1D takes up too much space in our lives. This November help JDRF raise awareness and educate others on life with T1D. Juvenile Diabetes fund for the arts Southern Indiana Chapter Alfred Gerriets sponsorship..
