In an effort to raise awareness about diabetes and increase contributions to assist diabetes research, Baltimore Ravens Defensive Tackle Haloti Ngata is proud to announce a partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. (JDRF).

“Diabetes is a disease that affects many individuals and has struck my family personally. I am passionate about working with JDRF and helping to educate children about the effects of diabetes and ways they can maintain control of the disease in order to live a normal life.” Haloti said.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the largest charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research in the world. They are driven to find a cure for diabetes because of the devastating nature of the disease, which strikes children, adolescents and adults suddenly, makes them insulin dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications.

In the U.S., a new case of diabetes is diagnosed every 30 seconds; more than 1.5 million people are diagnosed each year. JDRF, is known for their fiscal management; of every dollar raised over 86 cents goes directly to research and education.

Haloti is a graduate of Highland High School (Salt Lake City, UT) and was a football star at University of Oregon. He currently plays for the Baltimore Ravens and resides in the Baltimore area.
