I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! On Sunday, October 26, 2014, our family will be taking part in this year’s Walk To Cure Diabetes at the Art Museum Steps in Philadelphia with the "MAD Team". We are raising funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And, like Cameron, they know it never goes away.
To all my friends and family and to all the people I don't even know that this email reaches, I am asking for your support. Please donate to our personal fundraising efforts - even a dollar makes a difference so please don't think you have to donate more than you can afford. And please pass this email along ...we are truly grateful for every penny. By doing so, you can help us make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.
Did you know that:
T1D is an autoimmune disease that comes on suddenly and strikes both children and adults at any age?
T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle?
Those living with T1D must carefully balance insulin doses with eating and daily activities throughout the day and night?
Those living with T1D must test their blood sugar by pricking their fingers for blood 6 or more times a day?
Complications arising from T1D include kidney disease, blindness, cardiovascular disease, amputations, etc.?
As the leader of the type 1 diabetes community, JDRF unifies global efforts to cure, treat and prevent T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered and neither will I. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible?
You are welcome to join us on Sunday, October 26, at the Art Museum Steps in Philadelphia at 9.00 a.m. The Walk kicks off at 10.00 a.m - see you there!
Thank you so much for your support!
