Hello and welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Personal Page. I’m glad you stopped by, that shows me you have an interest in helping to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes or are just a good person who is hearing that small voice inside saying it is time I help make a difference.
I want to begin by saying a huge, THANK YOU to all of you who have provided ongoing support to JDRF by sponsoring me in the annual Walk to Cure Diabetes each year. The need for your financial support continues and with every dollar raised we come closer to a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
On July 1, 2013 I will be celebrating an anniversary of sorts. Not an anniversary that you get excited about so much but in a way I guess you could call it a survival anniversary. July 1st will be my 40th anniversary as a Type 1 diabetic. There are a lot of Type 1 diabetics that I have known that have not reached this milestone as this deadly disease has cut their lives short. I hope and pray that I have many years ahead of me and that I will see the cure for diabetes in my lifetime. For this to happen I need your support. I have set two goals this year and I need your help and the help of anyone else that you can reach out to to help me reach these goals.
Goal #1 My personal walk goal for 2013 at $4,000.00 ($100 for each year I have lived with diabetes). You can help me reach this goal with your tax deductible contribution. Please also check with your employer to see if they will match your contribution.
Goal #2 I would like to see 40 people join my work team and each person raise $100 so that my $4,000.00 will be doubled. So sign up to walk today at
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
