Aloha Family and Friends,
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! I am excited to be the volunteer President of the Hawaii Chapter of JDRF for the next two years. JDRF is making tremendous strides in research and technology that will help me and many others in the coming years.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research. For the fourth year in a row I will be joining forces with Tori Marciel as well as John Henderson in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Living with Type I Diabetes is a daily challenge as I have given myself over 10 thousand shots of insulin since diagnosis. Seeing children have to do this same regiment is what motivates me to find a cure. I am now more passionate than ever and am asking for your support in helping me find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
There are two ways you can help make a difference for myself and everyone living with Type 1 Diabetes:
1) One of JDRF's largest fundraising events is the "Walk to Cure Diabetes." I would love for you to join my walk TEAM known as "One TEAM, One DREAM" which consists of Tori Marciel and I whom are both 1 diabetics, as well as John Henderson (Board Member) and many of our other family and friends. The walk will take place on Saturday, November 2nd at 8:30am with registration starting at 7:30am. It's a 2 mile walk at Central Oahu Regional Park (94-801 Kamehameha Hwy Waipahu, HI).
Use this link to register to walk. http://www2.jdrf.org/goto/erichannum
2) Or you can send a tax-deductible contribution of any amount, made payable to JDRF or online.
Thank you for your support and I would be honored to see you at the walk on Saturday, November 2nd.
