Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.
In 2011, we lost a dear friend to this disease. We walk for him and all others who suffer from T1D. Not a day goes by without thinking about Jake. He was way to young to leave us. SO, I am asking all of my family and friends to join us in this walk and donate to help us reach our goal. Let's do everything we can, to prevent this from happening to other families, loved ones, and friends. Rest in peace Jake!
