I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll 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. †††† At age 2 years old, my nephew Elijah was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.† Elijah checks his blood sugar 8-10 times and gets 6 shots each and every day.† Without access to insulin, he would die.† There is no cure for juvenile diabetes; however the progression of diabetic management over the past years has been phenomenal. †††† I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for Elijah & millions of people living with type 1 diabetes. †††† Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
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).
