Cushman & Wakefield’s Tampa office hosted a salad luncheon to raise money to benefit JDRF. Employees were asked to sign up to bring a salad bar item and a $10 donation was requested to participate.
JDRF is a global organization with a strategic research plan to fight type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults. Currently, it cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is a charity that the Tampa office supports throughout the year, spearheaded by our Asset Services Senior Managing Director, Tim Rivers. Tim’s son, Jake, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2002. In the intervening years, Tim and his family have raised more than $700,000 in support of JDRF. Jake currently attends Hillsborough Community College where he studies finance and plays baseball.
The salad luncheon was a great success and raised $650.
The Cushman & Wakefield Florida team is committed to giving back to those in need in our communities and around the world. In honor of Cushman & Wakefield’s Centennial, Cushman & Wakefield in Florida will be highlighting employees/initiatives giving back throughout the state. Our goal is to spotlight 100 examples of giving back in 2017.
