The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the Calgary Flames are proud to announce that Calgary Flames forward David Moss
has partnered up with the JDRF Calgary Chapter for a fundraising initiative that will benefit our youth and the Foundation as a whole.
Moss is the official athlete spokesperson for JDRF Calgary and will participate in many of the JDRF events and fundraisers.
Moss has pledged to the JDRF $100 for every regular season goal and $200 for each post-season goal for the 2009-2010 season.
“I am extremely proud to represent the JDRF. Many don’t know the number of youth that are actually affected by some form of diabetes,” says David Moss
. “I am looking forward to partnering with JDRF in their mission to find a cure.”
JDRF is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 diabetes research worldwide. JDRF's mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. JDRF funding is associated with most major scientific breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes research to date in Canada and around the world. It has raised over $1.38 billion for diabetes research since its inception in 1970, including $156 million in 2008 to over 1,000 grants, centers, and fellowships in 22 countries.
While Flames players continue to be involved in Southern Alberta through Calgary Flames Community Relations initiatives many have also adopted programs they support on their own.
Moss’ total will be updated after each game on the Player Programs Page
of the Flames website.
