Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!

I'm joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.

T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.

We have joined this effort to support James' best friend, Ian who was diagnosed with T1D at the beginning of this school year.  James and Ian have been best buds since they were in diapers; this disease is something that he has to live with for the time being.  Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today in the hope that he won't have to live with it forever. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

Thank you for your support!
