Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! It is that time of year again. I cannot tell you how much your support over these many years has meant to both me personally and to my extended family. I hope all is well you and your family. We lost our inspiration last year but continue to walk with the joy of Tim's memory. My cousiin Lisa just started insulin pump therapy and my brother Colin is researching the pump himself with his unfortunate discovery that he too suffers from T1D. The JDRF needs our support now more than ever and you can donate with confidence. This foundation is one of the best non-profit agencies with over 90% of your donation going directly to research.
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! It is sincerely appreciated with all of my heart.
