Hello! This is my third year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
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.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
I am 12 years old. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on my Grampa Dave's birthday, October 18, 2006. It has been about 7 years now. I started using the pump. Sometimes it feels like I have had diabetes forever! Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday. I joined this walk because I wanted to take part in finding a cure. I’m tired of poking myself every day with shots or simply testing my blood sugar. I want to stay in my classroom with my friends all day. I want to have recess instead of going to the nurse's office for insulin. So, with good friends and family like you I hope we can come together one-step closer to finding a cure.
The money we raise will go to finding better treatments and a cure for people with type 1 diabetes. I need your support, so please do whatever you can – join my team, Mary's Friends, register to participate in the Walk as an individual walker, or make a donation on my behalf.
Thank you so much for your support. I hope to see you at the Walk!
Remember to ask your friends to donate & walk!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
