Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,
“Our daughter, Zoë Tiana Samples was diagnosed on October 12, 2012 with type 1 diabetes, and still today we are still adjusting to the new world of diabetes. On October 19, 2013, we are going on a 5 K walk beginning and ending at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, GA.
Last year, we were so touched by families, friends and employees from the Eaton Corporation that created a team who walked in Zoë’s honor and those who pledged support. It meant the world to know that we were not alone.
Therefore, with so much of encouragement and support from so many, we have accepted the challenge to form Team Zoë and raise money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), the largest non-governmental funder of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
This walk is a very important event for our family; it help raises funds, awareness, and also hope for the hundreds of thousands of young people, like our daughter Zoë, who has Type 1 Diabetes.
We are writing to ask for your help, and we are hoping you are willing to contribute and/or participate. Your help could fund the research that could provide the critical breakthrough towards creating a cure. We are hopeful that you and/or your company would be willing to contribute towards this worthy cause.
Please join Team Zoë and make a donation and begin fundraising. It's simple, fast and fun!
