Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
PEACE LOVE CURE!
As most of you know, Lauren was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes or "the sugar" as we like to call it, last September. She has handled this like a champ, even though it is not always easy for her. We've had highs and lows, ins and outs and lots of bad days along with the good days. The sugar has not slowed her down one bit. She is a very active lady! She plays softball year round and is always off doing something with one friend or the other. Her incredible group of friends have been very supportive and understanding of her diabetes and help to look out for her.
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, and we'll see you on Walk day!
