Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRFs mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. I bet anyone you talk to has some sort of connection to diabetes. It is an awful disease that can happen to anyone at any time, no matter how healthy you are. From the moment you develop Type 1 diabetes, your general health & well-being are impacted forever. You have to take into account everything you eat or drink; your physical activity; and any cold, illness, or injury. Each of these things has the potential of turning into a life-threatening complication. You have to worry about fluctuating glucose levels every waking moment & even when you sleep. You never get to "take a day off."
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.

Our Ricos team goal is $10,000 so get your friends, family, and kids together and let's start fundraising!!
