This year, we're excited to form a team that will allow newly diagnosed families, and those who are just new to the Walk, to come and partake in the excitement of Walk day. It really is a fun and inspiring opportunity for those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) - both young and old - to come, check out the Walk, network with other families, and see what JDRF is all about!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. All of the money raised through the Walk to Cure Diabetes program is contributing to JDRF's efforts to fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D.
The challenge we've set for ourselves - to support one another in our fight against T1D, 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.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button!
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on Walk day!
