We are the Bionic Pancreas Team! We're here to fight Type 1 Diabetes one laugh at a time.
Walking in honor of 15 year old Peter, who was diagnosed in 2008. This year the walk is on his 16th birthday!
You can copy/paste this YouTube link to hear his story about how he got diagnosed, insulin injections/pumps, going to school as a diabetic and how it's changed his life: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn9hvZOmdzM
To find out about the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, read below:
Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
Each member of our team is already hard at work in their fundraising. If you have taken time to visit our team page today, we ask that you consider making a donation or joining our team.
