Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Jenna and I will be walking to support our #1 ALEX COBB! Alex was 8 years old when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
What was supposed to be a fun weekend ending with the annual NASCAR Daytona Race party on Sunday afternoon.... Turned into a stay at the hospital learning how to inject himself with insulin 4x a day and sticking himself to check his blood sugars 4-6 x a day. Alex has shown maturity and strength beyond his years throughout the past 8 years and has done an awesome job managing his diabetes throughout these trying adolescent years! It takes dedication, organization, and awareness on a daily basis and Alex and his family have been committed since day 1! We are walking to raise funds so that the day of a cure will come and Alex and the other kids can live a long life and free of daily, multiple finger sticks and injections!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I 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 me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
