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.
As most of you know, my daughter, Melanie has had T1D since she was 1 year old. She is now 9 1/2 and yes we can manage this disease but we need to cure this disease so she and millions of others don't have to live with it any more! Don't you want to be part of the cure and help others so they don't have to worry about the aweful effects of this disease such as limb amputation, vision loss, heart failure?
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Even $1 will bring us that much closer. Don't you want to be able to tell others that you helped cure diabetes?!?!?
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).
