Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
My friend Kelsey Anderson has type 1 diabetes. We have known each other since we were 7. When I found out she was diagnosed with diabetes, I had my mom rush me to the Peyton Manning Children's hospital to see her. I was so worried for her that I started to cry. Kelsey is strong and I knew that once I got there and I saw her, everything would be ok. Kelsey is like the sister that I never had. She is always there for me and I will ALWAYS be there for her. Kelsey is fun, outgoing, and not afraid to show her true colors. When Kelsey gets going she never stops. I will do everything in my power to help her. My great uncle don also has type one diabetes and has had it for 45 years. He is a very important reson to why I am participating this year. Diabetes is an important part of my life. That is why I am participating in this year's walk. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR TEAM KELSEY!!!!!!
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.
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!
