We hope everyone has had a well-rested and wonderful summer!
This past August marks 3 years that Chase has had Type 1 diabetes. Although Chase is an active, smart and loving boy, Lance and I work daily to maintain his health and happiness. Type 1 takes a constant toll on Chase's body and effects each aspect of our lives.
We want to thank all of you who helped our family earn the title "TOP TEAM" last year, bringing in the most money raised at $3,900. This year’s walk will help raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes away.
We are asking for your support, again. We hope to beat our last year's earnings. Chase is super excited, knowing there are, "scientists in labs" working to find the CURE we beg God for each day!
We ask you, from the bottom of our hearts, to donate to our personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
Chase and our family would LOVE for you to walk with us. We hope to have bright t-shirts with our team name, "Chasing A Cure!" We will have a blast and Chase will know how many people love and support him. 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!
The walk is on October 6th at 11am at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY!! We cannot wait and hope to get a big group out there for Chase.
Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on Walk day!
Lance, Lauren, Chase and Emry
