Give everything 110%, no matter what. My new employer opened my eyes to a community I never (not rarely or occasionally, NEVER) paid attention to and the sacrifices these folks endure each day in order to live a normal life. This normal life involves the body creating or reacting to a substance that occurs naturally in most bodies. Nobody chooses to get T1D and we can stop it.
I am making up for lost time and walking with my adorable parents to raise T1D awareness. Please check out GROUPON for cheaper registration prices or feel free to donate some scratch for a good cause. No pressure, but please be kind to all people on my behalf. Watch it all come back around :)
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
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!
