(KMOV.com) -- A crowd of more than 20,000 filled the streets of downtown St. Louis Sunday morning for the JDRF One Walk to raise money for diabetes research. 
 
News 4’s Russell Kinsaul served as emcee of the event. This is the 20th year for the walk which raised nearly $900,000 this year.
 
According to the JDRF, each year more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults – about 80 people every day – are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the US.
 
T1D accounts for $14.9 billion in health care costs in the US each year.
