The real estate industry will be holding its second annual JDRF Real Estate Games at Chelsea Piers to raise money to fund Type One diabetes (T1D) research.
Jim Whelan, an executive vice president of the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), who is also on the local JDRF chapter’s board of directors, is once again organizing the June 15 event.
“Real Estate is a competitive industry and this is a different way to exhibit that competition,” said Whelan, whose teenager, Jack, was diagnosed with T1D four years ago.
Last year, 19 teams raised over $82,000 and this year $220,00 has already come in.
