U. City’s Moonrise Hotel 

Was the Hip and Happening Spot

When Corporate Team Captains Met to Kick-off the

2013 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

Representatives of 18 of the area’s most energized companies (Monsanto, Panera, Edward Jones and EMD Millipore to name a few) had a high-spirited lunch and learn in the new Moon Room of the Loop’s Moonrise Hotel on Tuesday, August 27th.

“JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is more than a walk in the park - Sunday, October 6th, Upper Muny Parking lot in Forest Park – it’s a way for all of us to partner with JDRF to achieve a vision of a world without T1D (type 1 diabetes),” said Dr. John A. Pieper, President St. Louis College of Pharmacy.  “As the returning Corporate Walk Chair, I am proud to share the passion of thousands of walkers who are funding the research of life-changing therapies to create a future that will turn Type One into Type None.”
