Walking for a cure.
That's the goal of the Juvenile Diabetes Association's annual event at Apollo Career Center.
Nearly 300 people participating in this year's walk, that's the biggest turnout ever in Lima.
They're trying to find a cure for juvenile diabetes or type one diabetes.
Among all types of diabetes there are about 18 million people in the United States with the disorder, ten percent of those have type one.
It's believed to be genetic in nature and can reveal itself not only in children, but also adults.
Vicky Williams, development coordinator with JDRF says type one patients have to be careful in what they eat in order to control the disease.
While there is no cure, human trials with an artificial pancreas are showing promising results.
