I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This page is in honor of my son Keaton, who was diagnosed on August 23, 2011 as a Type 1 diabetic. While it was a life changing event, Keaton has taught us about meeting challenges head on with a positive outlook, and continues to be the ever active 8 year old one would expect.
This year, our family will be doing our part to help find a cure as we will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million.
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts, or Keaton's, if you are able. By doing so, you can help us make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Thank you for your support! Keaton and the Walock family appreciate any level of support you would be willing to give.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
