New York Jets quarterback, Mark Sanchez, is hoping to win $100,000 in grants for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project. “I want to help establish a much needed, nationwide educational program with JDRF to ensure that the warning signs of type 1 diabetes will become household knowledge for medical personnel, parents, teachers, and friends,” said Sanchez. “Then, a quick and accurate diagnosis can be made and proper treatment given before it results in a life threatening situation."
There are other NFL players petitioning for their causes. Please help us help Mark Sanchez win it for JDRF. Go to www.nfl.com/pepsirefresh and vote for him. We have until February 5th to vote- hurry!
