93.1 The Wolf Community Events
On Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., roughly 4,000 volunteers will participate in a 5k charity walk at Byrd Park to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D). JDRF Central Virginia Chapter, a local chapter of the leading international nonprofit organization whose mission is to cure, treat and prevent T1D, aims to raise more than $480,000 towards the cause at this year’s event. JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes encourages families, friends and co-workers to stay active while supporting a worthy cause.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF has raised 1.7 billion since its founding in 1970, and currently sponsors $530 million in scientific research in 17 countries. Historically, more than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures have directly supported research and research-related education. In 2012 Forbes magazine named JDRF one of its five All-Star charities, citing the organization’s efficiency and effectiveness. JDRF’s Central Virginia Chapter is located on Libbie Ave. in Richmond and online at www.centralvirginia.jdrf.org.
diggityFEST is Central Virginia's first and ONLY all kids music festival. Now in it's 4th year, we plan to do it even bigger and better than ever. In addition to a featured performance by the Diggity Dudes, a Richmond-based, nationally touring “kids band”, the festival also will include other national family music favorites and loads to do.  So bring your blankets and chairs, and plan to spend all day at diggityFEST 2014.
