Welcome to Kathleen Candela's Personal Page


For the 15th year in a row I am proud to walking with my Deloitte team in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million. 

As you know this JDRF walk is very important to me and my family.  My brother, Dan, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 9 and my son, Ben, was diagnosed 3 years ago in June at age 5. 

I really appreciate you joining my team or making a donation.  Together we can make a difference!

Thanks in advance for your generosity,

Kathleen, Pete, Dan and Ben
