Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Just three years ago, Sydney was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure. While she has adapted like a trooper, life just isn't the same with never-ending carb counting, blood sugar checks, and insulin injections.
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
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.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
