Welcome to the Hoot Squad!!!
My name is Suzanna Thompson. Me and my friend, and Chi Omega sister, Lauren Lerchenfeld have been diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes for 15 years. Type 1 Diabetes effects us and other every moment of the day. The disease has constant ups and downs, and comes with several serious consequences. There is currently no cure, but we are participating in the Murfreesboro walk with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to make an effort towards the cure!
We are selling Hoot Squad shirts for $12 each. We will be wearing these the day of the walk. Our Chi Omega sister Chandler Miller will be singing the national anthem to kick off the beginning of the walk!
If you are not able to participate the day of the walk, please consider making an online donation as a "virtual walker". You may also contact us if your business would like to make a donation.
Thank you for your time, we hope to see you on the Hoot Squad October 19!

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. 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 only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
