Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Darren and I often call one another during a regular work day when we've heard bad news about someone's child being sick or injured. We call just to say, "We are so lucky" and to reflect and send our thoughts to whoever is going through a difficult time. And when I stop and think about the parents that can't make that call, it saddens me. I want to do my part to try to give more people those moments to sit back and think about just what it means to have happy, healthy, carefree kids. Let's stop taking that for granted. Please join me in doing what we can to make that a reality for more parents.
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!
