Malibu Pumpers -- Team Julia Halprin Jackson (Julia, Ryan, Alan & Lyra) will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes on Oct. 6, 2013 at the State Capitol. With walkers around the world, we’re raising money to cure T1D (type 1 or juvenile diabetes).
T1D is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a growing percentage of them children.
When Julia was diagnosed with T1D in 2001, we set a goal to see it CURED. Unlike Type 2 diabetes, T1D is an autoimmune disease requiring injected insulin & daily finger pricks to stay alive. We’re helping by raising $ for JDRF, started by parents like us. JDRF has funded $1.6 billion in research, put a cure in sight, & earned an “A” rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy. You can help by sponsoring us. (All donations are tax deductible!)
News update: Julia & Ryan are engaged to be married! Julia’s working as an assistant editor at UC Santa Cruz Extension, while Ryan teaches English at Lincoln High School in San Jose where they live. This summer Julia had a scholarship at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference in Middlebury, VT, while Ryan was at Burning Man with his team’s “art car.” Julia’s got a great blog: juliahalprinjackson.com.
Here’s to a cure!
Julia, Ryan, Lyra, & Alan
(Josh & Shelby & our whole family will be cheering us on!)
