Welcome to the Dan Fans Team JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's 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 was diagnosed when I was nine years of age. I am now almost 18 and a senior in high school. Everyday I make sure to test my blood glucose, take my insulin and watch what I eat to stay healthy.
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.
If you have taken time to visit my team page today, we ask that you consider making a donation. To make a team donation, click on the "Donate to this Team" button at the top of this page.
Thank you. Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications!
