Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Type I diabetes touched our lives 2 years ago when my granddaughter, Makenna, at 5 years old was diagnosed. Since then, our worlds have changed and each year I take part in the 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. Although I will be out of town and unable to walk this year, that will not stop me from raising funds for this very important and personal cause. My husband and family will be there and would love for your to join them.
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!
