I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! I'll be taking part in this year’s Walk to raise funds to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). I have a personal reason for walking this year..Grace my 6 year old "Granddaughter" was diagnosed with this awful disease a little over a year ago. She gets 4 shots a day and has to check her blood sugar 4 to 6 times each day. Grace has been a real trooper through all of the needle sticks, and carb counting. If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening. And they know it never goes t away.
I am asking for your support. Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. By doing so, you can help me 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?
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. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? I know we are all giving to fundraisers but I am asking my friends and family for 5 or 10 dollars, If you would like to walk with us please join our team!
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
