Hi, my name is Gracie Gordon. Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk To Cure Diabetes fundraising page. I am walking to raise money to cure Type I Diabetes. My team name is the Grace Slicks. I named my team after the lead singer in the band Jefferson Airplane. I picked this team name, because Grace Slick had to fight her way to the top of a record industry that was controlled by men.
Two years ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I have had to fight this disease and learn how to live with it. It has been hard. Although I have met really nice people and made good friends at diabetes camp, I wish I could make this disease go away. I would love to see this disease cured.
I am asking for your help. Please donate to my personal fundraising effort. You are also invited to join my team and walk with me. If you are going to walk wiith me, then please give me your T-Shirt size. We will be handing out T-Shirts the day of the walk.
The walk is scheduled for October 14 2012 at 9:00 a.m. at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Together we can make a big difference for people living with Type I Diabetes.
Did you know that T1D is an autoimmune disease that can attack children and adults at any age?
Did you know that T1D has nothing to do with diet or sugar intake.
Did you know that people living with T1D must carefully balance insulin with food and exercise all day, every day.
Did you know that people living with T1D must prick their fingers at least 6 times a day.
There are life threatening things about diabetes, but I won't talk about it here. Let's just focus on curing diabetes.
Thank you for your help!!!
