Welcome to the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page of the Chase Racers!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. We will be walking especially for Chase Fletcher this year, an inspiring young man, who was recently diagnosed with T1D. Not only is he a gifted athlete, swimmer, musician and student, but more importantly he has a big heart and carries himself humbly and stoically in the midst of adversity. The money we raise will help JDRF fund critical research to remove the impact of T1D from Chase's life as well as the lives of millions of others until a cure for the disease is found.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. 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 only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
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.
We encourage you to become a Chase Racer in support of an amazing young man and an organization committed to ending T1D and improving the lives of those who live with it.
Mahalo nui you for your support!
