I'm participating in the JDRF AMAZING WALK TO CURE DIABETES!
Hi I'm Matt.
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million. I'll be walking on Saturday, May 10th in the NewBo-Czech Village District of Cedar Rapids.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June 2011 when I was 11 1/2. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for me and the millions of people living with Type 1 Diabetes.
