Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Dear Family Friends,
On Sunday, Oct. 6th, 2013, our family will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. As you may know, we have a personal connection with type 1 diabetes (T1D) that affects millions of children and adults. My son, Jordan was diagnosed in August of last year. We also lost our father/grandfather to complications of T1D in 2006, after living with it for 42years.
As you can imagine, this diagnosis of T1D has changed all of our lives forever. While managing day to day through these life changes, we are committed to supporting JDRF and are asking for your support.
We have formed our walk team to raise money to support the research required to cure, better treat, and prevent T1D, and to provide support while managing this disease.
Two small steps can make a BIG difference!
1. Make a monetary contribution in support of Jordan Fischer and in memory of George Cole. Any amount is welcome. Online donations are safe and secure. Simply visit walk.jdrf.org and search under Donate to a Walker.
2. Pray for our team, family and everyone walking across the Chicagoland area tomorrow. Your support and prayers will make a difference!
Please know that more than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research related education. Past JDRF research efforts have helped to significantly improve the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered.
We greatly appreciate your consideration and support of this worthy cause. We look forward to having as many people as possible join us. Even if you can’t join us at the Walk, we appreciate any and all donations made as part of our fundraising efforts for JDRF.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Again, thank you from all of us for your generous support of Jordan and George.
