Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to Cole's Crushers fundraising page!
We are taking part in this year?s Walk to support Cole and raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). In November of 2012, Cole was diagnosed with diabetes. Over the past few months, we have seen him become the bravest five year old we know. He has taught us all some very valuable life lessons. We speak openly about the disease, and he is aware that scientists are working very hard to come up with a cure. The money we raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people?s lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person?s pancreas stops producing insulin?a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support us and donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
