Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My godson Ronan is 4, and he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes several years ago. Our group is called Ronan's Runners. This will be our second year walking on behalf of JDRF. We had a great time and a very successful first year, we plan on making this one even better! Ronan's mother Mandi is my best friend, so my goal is to do whatever I can to help raise awareness for Ronan and all the other children out there with Type 1 Diabetes. Remember there is no cure for diabetes, so lets help find one!
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 Ronan's Runners 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!
Jennifer McGrath for Ronan's Runners
