Welcome to Adam Erickson's Personal Page

    Hi.....this year, I'll once again be taking part in JDRF's Walk To Cure Diabetes along with one-half million other walkers across the country.  Our goal is to raise $89 million to fund research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes ("T1D).  I will be taking part in the Walk event in Sioux Falls on January 25, 2014 and my personal goal for Adam's Army is to raise at least $15,000.

    T1D is a devastating disease that affects millions of people with a large and growing percentage of them children.  I turned 13 years old on November 8th and I've had T1D since just before I turned 2.  I'm tired of living with this disease and worry every day about the serious health complications that can come from T1D. 

    There is good news though.  JDRF is one of our best hopes for finding a cure.  JDRF funds more T1D research than any other charitable organization worldwide and JDRF is making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure. 

    Now more than ever.....you can make a crucial difference.  I want to invite you to join me on January 25th at the Sanford Research Center in Sioux Falls to walk to raise awareness in hopes of finding that cure.  And whether you can join me or not at the Walk, I'd also ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to JDRF on behalf of Adam's Army so that critical research can continue.  You can make that donation right here on my JDRF website.  Also tell your family and friends and let's all work together to rid the world of this terrible disease.  Whether you have supported my efforts in the past or are making that consideration for the first time.....THANKS!  I'm looking forward to throwing a party someday to celebrate when a cure has been found and I'd love to invite you then as well.
