Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Our family will be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for our friend Grayson and the millions of other people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). Grayson is our neighbor and one of our son, Jacob's, closest friends. Over the last couple of years, we have learned how this disease affects every minute of not just Grayson's life, but his entire familie's. Through Jeff and Christy's tireless efforts, Grayson appears to be just another kid on our block. However, there is so much that goes on behind the scenes that most of us never hear about. Below is a video that will give you a look into one day in the life of Grayson and his family. I hope you will watch it and be moved, as we were, to make some small contribution to the JDRF fund. The money we 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 us and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign or better yet, join our team and walk with us. 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!
