Welcome to Radio Park's JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
OUR STORY: At the end of November, a Radio Park Second Grader, Sarah F., was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. In the blink of an eye, life changed for Sarah and her family. As part of Sarah's school family, Sarah has taught our classroom family so much about Diabetes-with a book she shared with us, with the ongoing information she shares with us, and also just by watching her every day and seeing how brave she is and how well she takes care of herself to stay healthy. Her daily routine has become a part of our daily life in our classroom. We are so proud of Sarah, and want to share our love and care for her by participating in this walk. As Sarah's Radio Park TEAM, we are joining this year's Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.
In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D 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 the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.
