Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Hey!! Welcome to my Walk To Cure Diabetes fundraising page!!! I will be particpating in the Walk on May 10, 2014 for my handsome, happy nephew Sam. Sam was diagnosed at the age of 3 with type 1 diabetes, which runs in the Olson family.
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.
Please help me 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.
Please support my commitment and donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
