Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As you know, I work for JDRF and could not be more proud of the work we are doing. The type 1 diabetes research we are funding has never been more promising. We are at a critical juncture where more funding is required to continue to move advancements closer to the people living this disease.
To get a sense of the need, please read this article written by one of our outstanding board members. If you've ever taken your kids' heatlh for granted, you won't after reading this:
To help find a cure for families like the Bertrands, I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Here is a great video that explains why your support is so important:
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
PS, another great way to support JDRF is through our upcoming Gala on DEcember 14th. Some of you have joined us in the past and are consdiering joining us again this year. Please feel free to choose either of these great ways to support JDRF - it all goes to the same great mission - to find a cure for T1D. Motown legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Smokey Robinson will be performing.
