Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! As some of you know, my grandson, Connor, was diagnosed with type 1 diabates when he was only 14 months old. Now he is an energetic two year old and doing great. My daughter and son-in-law amaze me every day with how much they do (and do so well) for the family's favorite little man. Connor has to have his finger pricked at least 5 times a day in order to check his blood sugar levels and, as if that wasn't enough, he also receives 4 shots each day. He is the toughest and bravest toddler I know. His smile is contagious and he is generous to everyone with his hugs and kisses. My family is blessed to have this little guy around.
In order to demonstrate their support and help raise awareness, Connor's parents have created a team to walk in this years fund raiser on August 3rd at Michigan State University. I joined the team and am hoping to help them in their efforts. The purpose of the Walk is to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts or join our team and walk with us. By doing so, you can help make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Thank you for your support!
