Greensboro, SFW won by more than 50 miles.
During this week, employees and SFW clients generously pledged

made a difference in raising money for a cure.
SFW is the JDRF Piedmont Triad chapter’s first corporate sponsor, partnering with the organization
for the JDRF Ride to Cure, benefiting type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
Participating cyclists at SFW and the Piedmont Triad JDRF chapter will train
together for the 100-mile Amelia Island, Fla. ride on October 3-6, 2019.
