Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
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!
Just after we celebrated the coming of 2013, our family was thrown a monster of a curveball. Diabetes? In a 3-year-old? Looking back there were signs and symptoms that we assumed were only part of being a growing young child. I hope that with our donation and those that we raise, the money can be used to help educate people and families about Type 1 Diabetes. JDRF was extremely gracious to us when she was diagnosed and provided many valuable resources and materials that made life just a little bit easier. Evie loves her Rufus teddy bear. Anything you can donate will be graciously appreciated.
