Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
We are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It’s simple, fast, and fun!
Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on Walk day!
My name is Kristine Rowe and I am 12 years old. I am a typical kid trying to live a typical life. However, on June 26, 2012 I didn't have such a typical day. I was diagnosed with T1D and my life was changed forever. It's a very complicated disease you can treat, but never completely control.
I wear an insulin pump or give myself shots which serve as my life support. I have to prick my finger and check my blood several times a day and even in the middle of the night. It's a disease that you never outgrow or can forget about. It's there when I go to bed at night, it's there in the middle of the night, it's there when I get up in the morning, it's there when I'm at school and on fieldtrips, it's there on my birthday, it's there on our vacations, it's there on holidays -- IT'S ALWAYS THERE! T1D never sleeps or takes a vacation.
I would like to invite you to join my team "The Searchers - Searching for a Cure" along with me and my family on Saturday, September 28 at Longbranch Park, Liverpool, NY. If you are unable to join me but would still like to support me, you can donate through my web page on the JDRF website or call 598-6874 or JDRF at 453-9327.
I love photography and am selling cards ($1 each) with photos I have taken as my personal way to raise money for JDRF to help improve my life and others living with T1D if you would prefer to donate that way.
