Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes "Big Shots" Team Page!  

We are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining team Big Shots and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.  

I, Sarah Bradley, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 7-years old. The lifestyle I live is not an easy one and there are many others who would agree. Every day is a struggle to keep up on finger pricks, carb counting, shots and more. It's always been my dream that some day there will be a cure for this disease, whether it be during my generation or the next. I have a 5-year old daughter and I pray that she does not become a diabetic herself. Every time she tells me she's thirsty or wakes up during the night to go to the bathroom I worry that these may be the signs that she may be a diabetic. Please help the JDRF in finding a cure either by joining team "Big Shots" for this event or making a donation. Any effort, big or small, is greatly appreciated.

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It’s simple, fast, and fun!

Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
