Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
This year I won't be at the Walk being held on October 5th, but I am still raising funds to find the cure for type 1 diabetes! I won't be able to Walk since I will be at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville attending my freshman year. And when I start college, type 1 diabetes is going with me. I will not outgrow this disease and I cannot make it go away. That is why I am asking you to help me find the cure for this life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. 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 largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
