Since my son Nathan (thus the team name N8 is GR8 or GR8N8) was diagnosed at six years of age in 2007, technologies have become afforable that provide some amazing tools that have changed our routine of poking fingers with lancelets and injecting insulin with syringes to weekly replacing infusion sites that monitor glucose levels and administer insulin thanks to research provided by JDRF fund raising.
In this uncertain time of fiscal responsibility for this great nation, research funding is more at risk than ever. Thankfully, private corporations and good citizens stand up and help fund good causes and JDRF spends 80% of each donation on research. Over that last couple years Dynetics and it's employees/contractors have answered the call and with your participation and/or donations will again this year!
Back on April 20th, 2013 @ Milton Frank Stadium in Huntsville, AL we had a pretty good turnout that raised over $1000 at our annual car show! We will be back in 2014 so friend us on Facebook so you will be notified and bring your hot rod, truck, rv, boat or motorcycle and have some gear head fun while supporting a great cause!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support!
