On Sunday, October 6th, our family will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. As you may know we have a personal connection with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) that affects millions of children and adults. Our daughter Brandi was diagnosed with T1D almost 9 years ago.
As you can imagine, this diagnosis of T1D has changed all of our lives forever. While managing day to day through these life changes, we are committed to JDRF. We raise funds to fulfill the important mission to improve the lives of every person with T1D, while accelerating progress toward curing, better treating, and preventing the disease.
We have formed our walk team to raise money to support the research required to cure, better treat, and prevent T1D, and to provide support while managing this disease.
We are actively recruiting anyone who would like to join us on our team and raise money in support of Brandi and the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Two small steps can make a BIG difference!
1. Make a generous contribution in support of Brandi. Any amount is welcome. Online donations are safe and secure. Simply visit walk.jdrf.org and search under Donate to a Walker. However, if you prefer you can send us a check made out to JDRF. Please mail checks to: Team Brandi P.O. Box 234, Barnhart, MO 63012
2. Join our Team and help us fundraise in support of Brandi on October 6th. You can register for our team at http://www2.jdrf.org/site/TR/Walk-MO/Chapter-GreaterMissouriandSouthernIllinois4336?team_id=80474&pg=team&fr_id=2321
Your support and fundraising efforts will make a difference!
Please know that more than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research related education. Past JDRF research efforts have helped to significantly improve the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. We will not rest until T1D is fully conquered!!!
We greatly appreciate your consideration and support of this worthy cause. We look forward to having as many people as possible join us. Even if you can’t join us at the Walk, we appreciate any and all donations made as part of our fundraising efforts for JDRF.
If you have any questions or need any additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, thank you from all of us for your generous support.
