Please join us in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
A few months ago, I was diagnosed with T1D. My life has changed forever but I have decided to help find a cure so that this will stop happening to children like me. I can't do this by myself so I am asking for your help - together we can do something to make a difference.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people, including myself, living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money WE raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Friend and Family, I encourage you to sign up, donate, and come walk with Team Tie-Dye-Abetes on October 26th. Bring your friends, too! Better yet, bring 10 friends! I know that the Walk will be a fun experience for us and I also know that YOU can make a differencefor millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you in advance for your support and prayers!
By the way, mom did help me with this letter but I approve!
