Welcome to Jake Erickson's Personal Page

Hello!  This year, as I have done in the previous 8 years, I'll be taking part in JDRF's  South Sound Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $90 million.

Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.

I've had diabetes for over 8 yrs now, having been diagnosed when I was 2 1/2. Eight years sure does go fast.  I've had a lot of finger pokes, shots & pump site changes over the years.  My hope is that one day I don't have to worry about any of those things.

I've also had numerous visits to the ER, during these 8 years, related to diabetes.

So please help me, along with the rest of Jake's Crew, continue to raise money for this very important cause!  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.

Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
