Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page! This is my first year walking for JDRF.
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. This is my first year walking fot JDRF. Earlier this year my friends and neighbors found out there vibrant little boy, Lane, has JD1. I can't imagine what they are going through. Just like that their life was torn upside down. Lane is just 2 yrs old, how does one explain to such a young child that its for his own good that they pick his little finger several times a day, and give him shots regularly. No family should have to endure this, that is why we must fight to find a cure!, Please help me raise money to help find a cure, NO MORE T1D , GO TEAM LANE!
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 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.
