Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes. I was very active with JDRF at my previous employer and I'm trying to get employees at my current company, Apache Inc., involved too! Having no idea how much interest and support there is for JDRF at Apache, I'm starting out by setting a goal of having 10 walkers on our team, as we try to reach our goal of raising $1,000.
We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. 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. 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!
