Join Sabrina's Team -- A Girl, A Walk and A Cure -- for the Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Let's Walk! It's hard to believe this is our 7th year! There are a couple of reasons we keep walking. 1) This is Sabrina's favorite day (other than her birthday)! She loves walking her friends and family and getting everyone together. 2) At the end of the walk on our 4th year, Sabrina asked me -- did we raise enough for me to get my cure? I could hardly hold back the tears when I told her that we don't have a cure yet -- but we walk so someday there will be a cure. You see, Sabrina knows there will be a cure someday -- she's counting on it. So we walk to support T1D research. 3) Kids with diabetes can't ejoy what other kids take for granted -- sleepovers, participating in acitivies without mom or dad hanging around, enjoying a treat without a shot, and swimming for an afternoon without blood sugar tests every two hours. We walk to support and celebrate kids with T1D.

I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts.  By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

Did you know that:

  • T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
  • T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?

As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D.  JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.  Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?


Thank you for your support!
