Hi my name is Nate and in Feb of 2008, at age 8, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Everyday I hope for a cure from this disease. Once again 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.
My teams name is Nate's Knights,as we band together to fight and bring awareness to Diabetes.
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 or join my team Nate's Knights and walk with us to raise awareness!!! Together we can make it happen!
