Thank you for visiting my JDRF Walk for a Cure Page to support my daughter, Emily - She's my #1! Who's yours?
Did you know that Emily is just 1 of 3 million Americans have Type 1 Diabetes? That is 3 million people who could not prevent their diabetes and can not cure it - without our help!
Our team, The Wild Things, will be taking part in the 2013 JDRF Walk for a Cure for Diabetes on January 26th at the Sanford Research Center. The Walk draws people together in a family friendly, healthy activity for a worthy cause while raising money to help find better treatments and a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
The Wild Things are Making Every Step Count achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The money our team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
Emily's dream is not only to take part in the walk, but to have the largest family walk team ever. This means we need to help Emily pull together over 150 people to walk with her, either as in-person walkers or virtual walkers. Last year we had 75 walkers, with your help we can reach our goal this year! This year's Walk takes place on January 26, 2013, and Emily needs your support.
Now more than ever, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people like Emily with Type 1 Diabetes. Please join our team, make a donation and begin fundraising. It's simple, fast and fun! Just click on the Join this Team button, become a walker - either real or virtual, make a donation and begin to pass the word on to everyone you know!
