Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!

I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). I am walking in honor of my grandfather, who lived with T1D for 50 years and suffered countless complications from this disease. The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D and ensure that no one has endures what my grandfather did for so many years. Together, we can turn Type 1 into Type None!

T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like YOU!

Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

Thank you so much for your support!
