I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes for Shay!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our nationwide goal of raising $94 million. †
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Recently, my 8 year old godson, Shay, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. This diagnosis was very unexpected, and extremely hard on everyone who is involved in Shay's life. Shay is a remarkable child who is funny, smart, kind, and an all around great kid. He has brought so much happiness into the lives of everyone he is around. My life would not be what it is today without Shay. I love him will with all of my heart. For anyone who knows me, you know that Shay is my life, and that I would do anything for him. He is my Boo Boo, and I thank God everyday for bringing him into my life.†
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
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).
