Welcome to Ethan's Dream Team!
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 Ethan's 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.
Ethan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 8. 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.
Ethan has been fearless in never letting diabetes get him down. With unbreakable willpower and a passion for all things sports and fitness, Ethan has battled his condition with pride and determination for a cure. With your help, Ethan can see that dream of a cure become a reality.
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 becoming part of Ethan's Dream Team? Just click on the "Donate to this Team" button, to make a donation. Also, you may click on the "Join this Team" button to walk with us. Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
This years event takes place on October 5th, 2013 at Shelby Farms in Memphis,TN.
Registration begins at 8:30 AM and the walk starts at 10:00 AM.
