Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page- Team Zack's Bulldogs!
We have just hit our newest goal of $600 and I can't thank you all enough for the love and support you have shown us!! We are all ready for the walk this Sunday and can't wait to test out or new shirts!!!
We still have 3 days to get those donations in if you are able. If not, thank you for being there for all of us! We are so blessed to have such an amazing network of family and friends!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure. We are walking in support of Zackary Dicks who was diagnosed just over 2 years ago, at the age of 6 and continues to demonstrate the courage and strength of an adult as he battles daily with the "annoying diabetes". He shares his own knowledge of the disease with all that ask and want to know and makes sure that everyone understands this will NOT stop him from what he wants to do. He earned the nick name "Bulldog" from his past 2 years of playing baseball, hence his JDRF Team Name; Zack's Bulldogs.
*********We surpassed our goal!!! Thank you all so much!!********************************
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
Love, Tim, Kelly & Our Crew!
