We appreciate your support and are PUMPED to cure diabetes!!
We will turn Type One into Type None
Hello! This year, for the 7th year, our family will be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes on October 26th from 9 AM to Noon at the Art Museum. We are joining the over one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our total goal of raising $80 million.
In the past 7 years, the Cohn Sisters have raised over $2.5 Million with the generous support of our friends (wow - THANK YOU!). Please help us by joining us at the walk on Oct 27th, donating to our team, and helping to raise money to find a cure for diabetes. No donation is too small (or too large).
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children, like us. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure. One of the most exciting innovations is the artificial pancreas which I (Sydney) did a trial for this year. JDRF is getting so much closer to a cure everyday, thanks to your help. Most researches say that a cure can be reached within our lifetime. But it will not be possible without your support.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. We can tell you that this support REALLY makes a difference! On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
