Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
First of all, thank you for taking the time to read my page.
I'm taking part in the JDRF walk to cure diabetes to help raise money for T1D. For those who don't know, my girlfriend, Mackenzie, was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 6 years old.
I know asking for money is hard to do, but it would be going towards a great cause. The money and proceeds will be going towards the research to find a cure. Help me to raise money to help fight this disease, not only for her but the millions of other kids that are diagnosed each year.
With that being said, reach deep down into those pockets and even if you can only afford $1, hey that's cool. It's something! Just think of everyone you'll be helping out. This will mean so much to me and others as well.
The rest of this explains what diabetes is and what the JDRF walk is
Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support me and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
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).
