Welcome to our 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.
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 these efforts.
As you know, our family was directly impacted a year ago by diabetes. Clare was diagnosed on Aug. 30th, 2011 with Type 1 diabetes. We have learned a lot about this chronic condition and are taking the steps we can to educate and advocate. Clare recently transitioned to an insulin pump after a year of syringes. The pump a step in the right direction, as we can now better regulate Clare's blood glucose throughout the day. The pump is significantly less intrusive and less stressful. But its still not a cure. We are focused on doing what we can to lend a hand in the fight for a cure for this disease. Please join us and help us in that fight.
