Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Our lives changed forever in November of 2013 when Braedyn was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It is a daily challenge which involes a mimimum of 5 blood sugar test, insulin injections, 2AM alarms, and not so fun mood swings but we are up for the challenge. Braedyn isn't letting T1D slow her down; she is as active as ever and has handled her diagnosis like a champ but we would all love to see a day when T1D is no more so we have created a JDRF team!
Braedyn's Brigade taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people like Braedyn's life until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
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. 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 challenge we've set ourselves - to raise $500 for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections 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, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your supporting Braedyn and other Type 1 Diabetics, and we'll see you on Walk day!
