Why am I flying to Phoenix to participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes when I could participate in the same walk in Boston? I'm walking with Jenny, my sister, and Jim, my brother-in-law, on November 3, 2012 in Tempe, Arizona. I have tried to make it a tradition within the last few years depending on how many vacation days I have available. This year, I decided to try to raise some money instead of just making my own personal donation.
Jenny was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was in college. While she was studying Electrical Engineering, relocating every 6 months between Lawrence, Kansas and Sacramento, California for an internship at Intel, she was also learning what it meant to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
