We will turn Type One into Type None

Hello my name is Chis Holtz and welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes CURE CHRIS 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.  

It has been 11 year, 4 months, 21 days since I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. (9/5/2001 - 1/26/2013)

Since that day I have poked my fingers, arms and legs over 17,000 times to check my blood sugar numbers. I have given myself over 16,500 injections of insulin. There are no vacations from type 1 diabetes. Please help us find a cure for this terrible disease.

The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.

The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes.  For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community.  On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.

Each member of our team is already hard at work in their fundraising. If you have taken time to visit our team page today, we ask that you consider making a donation or joining our team.  To make a team donation, click on the "Donate" button at the top of this page or if you would like to make your gift to one of the team members please click on their name below.  To join our team, click the join team link below.

It's a simple as donating $1, $5, $10 or $20 online. Every dollar counts.

Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications! 

Thank You and God Bless You!!!!

Chris, Alex, Carol and Gary Holtz
