Welcome to the Twin Cities YLC (Young Leadership Committee) JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, we, as the young leaders of the Twin Cities, will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, at the Mall of America 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. The YLC is compromised of young adults with diabetes, as well as those who have a friend or family member with diabetes, who want to raise money and awarenss to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
We are asking for your support. Please donate to our fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help us make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
