Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Max and I will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
I walk in memory of Addie Parker, the daughter of my friend and coworker, Micki. I walk in honor of Jeff Pantel, Tyler's cousin. I also walk in honor of Emma Craven, the granddaughter of a youth pastor I worked with in Hudsonville. Type 1 diabetes has affected my life, and probably yours too, by harming those we know and love. Everyone knows someone, or knows of someone, with Type 1.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. 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 largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF today? Any amount, big or small, will help!
Thank you for your support!
