Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
At a recent JDRF meeting in Asheville, we heard about the progress that is being made toward the prevention and cure of Type 1 diabetes. We love JDRF's vision of continuing to lessen the impact of type 1 diabetes until there is no type 1 diabetes. "TypeOne to TypeNone" - The research that is going on now is so exciting! YAY!!
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure, YET!
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar checking and insulin adjustments to manage the disease.
So, Please support the Mission Challengers!! We challenge YOU -
if you do not have diabetes, we challenge you to support JDRF's vision of TypeOne to TypeNone.
if you have diabetes, we challenge you to to take care of yourself! Do the best you can to stay healthy so you are ready...The CURE is coming!!
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
