This year my mom Gerri and I will once again be proudly taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday February 22, 2014. Over the past 6 walk years... with your generous donations, we've raised $8,621.00 for diabetes research! Yay!! It would be really awesome if I could get that total up to $10,000 after this walk year. I set my goal for $1000, but maybe I can somehow raise the extra $379 to reach $10K over my 7 years of walks....anything is possible!!
****01/30/14 UPDATE: I was able to meet my $1000 goal (with everyone's generosity)... so now I'm shooting to raise a total of $1500 for this year!!! Please help if you can!! Thanks to all who donate!!***
Type 1 diabetes (#T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. It is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
This is my 7th year doing the JDRF walk and NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL to donate and is very much appreciated!!!!!80% of all donations to JDRF are invested into diabetes research!!
