Welcome to the Western Massachusetts, Type 1 Friends, JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
The Type 1 Friends Team is a comprised of individuals who are in the Western Massachusetts area and whose lives are affected by type 1 diabetes!
We are a team of type 1 diabetics young and old. Some of us have type 1 and some of us love someone with type 1 and we have come together for the same reason...to support and love one another, to create awareness of type 1 diabetes, and to walk together with the JDRF to raise funds to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes!
Team Type 1 Diabetes is taking steps to help the JDRF to progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until NO ONE has to fear developing this disease. By joining the Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, YOU WILL BE HELPING to fund critical Type 1 diabetes research and create a world without T1D!
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin.
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 only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D.
Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Click Now on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you on walk day or have you create awareness and collect funds alnog with us for this years JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on Sunday, October 20th, 2013!!! The walk is at Six Flags New England in Agawam, MA and it starts at 10:00am!
