RACING FOR A CAUSE

JDRF & T1D

Anthony Alfredo and AFA Motorsports have recently partnered with JDRF to help them get the word out about Type 1 Diabetes. T1D is a completely different disease than Type 2 Diabetes and is often misunderstood. Anthony will be using his racing program to help educate the public about T1D and help raise funding for research. In Anthony’s own words:

“My cousin Morgan is a few years younger than me and was diagnosed with T1D just after her sixth birthday. I grew up seeing how she had to deal with the disease by pricking her finger 10 - 12 times a day to check her glucose level and giving herself insulin injections to manage her blood sugar, so I have a very personal interest in wanting to see advancements made in treatments and hopefully, someday there will be a cure. We made the decision recently to use my racing platform to promote a great cause and T1D was naturally our first choice, so I’m very happy to be working with JDRF on this initiative.”
