Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
We are walking to raise money for a cure to Diabetes this weekend. Our team name is Michaela's Sunshine in honor of Michaela Taman who passed earlier this year. Michaela was a good friend of our 11 year old daughter Sydney and she lived with diabetes. Our family will walk to help share the joy that Michaela shared with us, the happiness and laughter she brought to our lives. Her mom Ginny shared that they would always sing you are my sunshine. This is to remind all of us that her Sunshine is still shining down on all of us from above. We walk for Michaela, her mom Ginny, dad Hank and brothers Austin and Tucker.
Knowing it's short notice our goal is to raise $500. Also if you want to walk, register under team name Michaela's Sunshine and choose team captain Chandra Linquist. We are getting t-shirts, let us know sizes and we can try to get you one to wear on race day. Registration is 7:30 AM and walk begins at 9 AM.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a 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!
