Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I am actually running the Los Angeles Half Marathon for Team Vishal.
This is something that my close friend Vishal had to deal with his whole short life. He inspired and awed us everyday in how he lived life with this disease but never let it effect the type of life he chose to live. I remember waking up in the morning on the floor of his apartment back in Austin, and seeing him inject a huge shot in his thigh, jump up and say lets go get this day started. He never let it get the better of him, and he taught us all so many life lessons. Miss ya homie, but we need you up there looking down and guided us through this crazy thing we call life.
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!
