Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! On October 12, 2013, I will be walking for Team Butterfly in honor of Kailyn Snekvik at Leadbetter Beach in Santa Barbara! Kailyn is 6 years old and was diagnoised with Diabetes last January. Kailyn is the daughter of Kate Snekvik who works with me at the daycare (Tecolote Daycare). Kailyn holds a very special place in my heart, which makes this walk even more meaningful to me. Kailyn is doing a great job managing her Diabetes and one day I hope there is a cure for her and all the other children and adults with Diabetes. Please help support me, team Butterfly, and Kailyn by making a donation that you are comfortable with. Every little bit helps in hopes of one day finding a cure for Diabetes. Thank you so much for your support!
I'll 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.
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 as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
