Welcome to TEAM ALEEM's JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Sarah & Rafia Aleem are putting together this walk team to help combat Type 1 Diabetes, a life threatening autoimmune disease that currently has no cure. Sarah was diagnosed as a T1D when she was a kid, and it has affected the family in every way. Though she is healthy and in control, T1D is not an easy disease to have and deal with.
We're taking steps (literally) to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D!
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease. Ask Sarah, she'll tell you all about it!
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising!!!
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
