Hello! This 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.
As most of you know, I have been walking for a cure for 9 years now. My son Anthony will be turning 12 in October. He has had Type 1 diabetes since he was 2. Anthony checks his blood 9 to 10 times a day. He wears a insulin pump 24/7 days a week. Won't you please help us to find a cure.
This years walk will be taking place on Sunday, October 16th at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway. If you would like to join our team -The Leaning Tower of Pisa" or would like to donate you can go to the website www.jdrf.org/walk look for my team, you can register online or give any amount of donation. If you perfer you may mail me a check or cash to my home address at 192 Sherman Ave, Hawthorne, NY 10532. Please make check out to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
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!
