Hello! My name is Elijah, and I am 9 years old. This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes.Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
I would am excited to be raising money and hope that you will join me at the event or be a virtual walker and raise money on your own for our team. Thanks for all of the support!
"I found out that I was diabetic in February of 2011. When I found out I was going to have to take shots everyday it made me feel unhappy. I do not like having diabetes, it is not fun taking shots and always worrying about what I am eating. I have to make sure I don't eat to many carbs or that I have eaten enough carbs. I want to find a cure because I don't wany anyone to have diabetes!" - Elijah
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 give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
