Hello! 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 goal of raising $89 million.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
I personally know more than one child/person with diabetes, and it's for them that I will be walking. Their names are Gracie, Eile, and Epiphany, and they have participated and/or are still participating in our school musical, our forensics team, and drama club. It's been a pleasure working with them all, for they are terrific and talented.
This year I'm once again officially on a team; if you'd like to find out all about the afore-mentioned Gracie, lovely young lady who inspires the team, be sure to check out the View Team Page tab.
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.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please help out? Together, we can make the cure a reality! Thank you!
