Welcome to "Celia's 5 Years Strong" JDRF Amazing Walk Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk theme this year is The AMAZING Walk to Cure Diabetes. Everyone that participates in the Walk is AMAZING!
This is our FIFTH year to have a Family Team and we enjoy it every year! Each year our team has raised over $4,000 for JDRF! Our first year's team "I WALK FOR CELIA" had 119 team members walking with us, all wearing blue hula monkey shirts. Our second year team "CAN YOU CURE ME NOW" received an award for the best team name! In 2011 "MISS CELIA'S POTATO HEADS" had our hot pink Miss Potato Head wearing an insulin pump and won best t-shirt design! Last Year we Rocked the Walk with Celia's RockBand T1D black shirts. This year we hope to have more AMAZING team members, raise over $5,000 for a CURE, and have fun along the way!
This year's Walk is The Amazing WALK to Cure Diabetes. We are working on a 5 year anniversary shirt for our team.
The Amazing Walk is Saturday, May 10th, outside at NewBo City Market! This is a new location and we will have more details once they become available.
Thanks again for joining Celia's team and being a part of the CURE! We'll see you all on Walk Day!
