Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in April of 2013. Diabetes is a tough disease and it affects the whole family. I believe T1D children and their families have a much more difficult fight, as children are growing and changing every second of every day. Type 1 Diabetes is a constant battle without any time off for the entire family. Maybe we can make things just a little better? Please join me in helping the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes by Walking or Donating.
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 making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
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.
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 testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
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!
