JDRF One Walk Tallahassee (Virtual)
Mar 28 @ 8:00 am

In the best interest to mitigate risk to the T1D community, we are shifting our Walk to an online experience. To learn more and join our virtual activities, check your email next week for more details.

JDRF Community One Walk is led by passionate volunteers with one goal: to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). It’s amazing what can happen when a community comes together to make a cure a reality—and there’s no better time than the present to get started!

When you participate in a Community One Walk, the money you raise supports life-changing breakthroughs that give hope to everyone impacted by this disease. And, you’ll have a great time doing it! That’s because you’ll walk with like-minded people who are committed to going above and beyond to help turn Type One into Type None.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle—and it’s serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure. But there is something you can do to help. Please register to walk with your community today.

FENNEC FOXES AT THE TALLAHASSEE MUSEUM! @ Tallahassee Museum
Apr 1 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Tallahassee Museum’s 2020 Spring Guest Animal Exhibit opens Friday, March 13th, and features seven Fennec foxes.

Twice per year, the Museum’s Guest Animal Exhibit hosts exotic wildlife from around the world, so our community has an opportunity to explore and educate themselves about the differences and similarities between our current guests and our displays of native animals.

Native to the arid regions of North Africa throughout the Sahara, the Fennec foxes are on loan from Zooville USA in Plant City, FL. They are the smallest Canid species with the largest ears. Fennec Foxes weigh an average of three pounds, with ears up to six inches long, and one-third of their body weight. Their large ears are food for two things: an excellent sense of hearing, with the ability to listen to prey moving underground and keeping them cool in the desert climate.
