I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!

Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! Again this year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million.  

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.

As most of you know I have two granddaughters that have type 1 diabetes.  The last few years I have been quite successful in raising money but this year I am trying to reach a personal high and I know I can't acheive this without your help.  Each year we get closer and closer to finding a cure.  As a parent you can understand how much my daughter and her husband must go through mentally to handle their children's condition.  This next year Peyton wil be going off to college and they will have to rely on her taking care of herself totally.  Kind of scary.  Together we can help find a cure and make life easier for those affected by type 1 diabetes.  I pray that you will dig a little deeper this year and help me reach my goal. 

Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?  Thank you in advance for your help.

May God Bless you for your participation!
