Welcome to our Gingerbreadkids JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
As many of you know, our son, Mason Charles Rowland, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) on Christmas evening 2012. At the time, our world stopped briefly as we began to realize just how different our lives would be. Our grieving turned to healing through the overwhelming amount of support we received. Through God, we were able to accept the circumstances and move forward with a positive perspective. Shortly thereafter, Sheena and I decided to start the Gingerbreadkids Foundation, working to educate and advocate the importance of raising funds for this cause. Our approach is to use highly respected organizations within the T1D community and serve as a sponsor for an event and/or cause.
We are proud to announce that we just registered for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes and accepted the challenge to form a team and raise money for JDRF, the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research. The Walk raises funds, awareness, and hope for the millions of people living with and affected by T1D, a serious autoimmune disease.
This year's Walk takes place on November 2, 2013, and we’re asking for your support. By raising money for critically needed research, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people with T1D. Please join our team, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It's simple, fast, and fun! Once you register, you'll find fundraising tips and tools in your participant center. Plus, we will be your coaches to answer any questions you may have.
If you are unable to join our team, please consider making an online donation. Our team fundraising goal has been initially set at $2,500 and with your support we know we will exceed this! Donating online is quick, easy, and secure! However, you can mail your contribution to us and we will deliver it to the JDRF corporate office (if you prefer this option please contact Sheena or I for our address). Make your gift payable to JDRF, and please put our name in the memo.
We are working on a design for this year’s team T-Shirt and will hopefully have this finalized soon! As always, we appreciate your continued support! Please pass this information to your network of family, friends, and colleagues. The more people we can reach the sooner a cure will be found.
