Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. There is no know reason why it happens; it cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you. :)
The daily challenges of life with T1D involves a 24/7 unrelenting cycle of testing blood sugar and taking insulin injections (shots) to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button. You can make a donation and start fundraising.
Thanks so much for all of your support, and we hope to see you on Walk day!!
