Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 14 years old. That diagnosis changed my life forever! Think of all the kids who are diagnosed before the age of 14.
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 or sign up to walk with me. You and your family can come to the zoo. The JDRF pays for your admission and parking!!! 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 and hope to see you on September 14th for the walk!
