    Our Heroes...Evan and Brett

We will turn Type One into Type None

Hello Champions For A Cure!

Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

Instead we have US!  We are the walk to change the future type.  We are the believing in the power of us type.  We are the won't stop until a cure type.  We are the funders of vital research type.  We are the Champions For A Cure!!

Champions are powerful.  The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.


Champions For A Cure credo:

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you're hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! ~ Rocky Balboa

T1D may have hit us hard.  Evan's diagnosis date 3.6.2009.  Brett's diagnosis date 1.25.2013.  We keep moving forward. We will continue to raise funds and awareness until we win this battle!
