Hello! This year, our Team, Elexis' Angels, will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
We are Walking for a Cure to help our daughter Elexis and others like her. Elexis will be turning 8 in November and she already has had her little fingers pricked 6720 times to test her sugar, and has taken 4320 shots in the last 3 years. She has gotten a bit better at all of this but it does get hard when she wants something to eat and because her sugar may be high she is not allowed to have certain things. It has been a rough three years for us all.
I hope you can find a way to join us for the walk, or become a Vertual walker, (we will not be able to make the walk in person this year so we are vertual walkers) and help us with our Fundraising. You may join our team Elexis' Angels or make a donation. Just go to JDRF's website and find walk for a cure in Tempe, look up our team name and make a donation or join and take donations.
We are looking to have another great year of fundraising.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
