Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Sequent is the proud Presenting Sponsor of the Houston JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Sequent is a longstanding supporter of JDRF and their commitment to creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). JDRF is committed to progressively removing the impact of T1D from people’s lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
In the past 5 years, Sequent, our employees and their family and friends have raised over half a million dollars for the JDRF Houston Gulf Coast Chapter. Year over year we have put together teams of walkers, often over 200 strong.
We find that the Walk is a wonderful way for our employees to make a difference in our community. The event brings us together with friends and family outside work for one great day of fun, food, and entertainment. Most importantly, the money Sequent raises directly supports JDRF's funding of critical T1D research.
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?
There are two ways to help:
Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you on Walk day!
