Jack's Juicers





We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to Jack's Juicers JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!  

As many of you know, our oldest son Jacksen, was diagnosed almost 2 years ago with T1 Diabetes. He's a brave and strong little boy who is making it SO easy to adapt to our "new normal" and takes his energy juice (aka insulin) like a champ!

We are working to raise money a for disease that affects so many people that I'm sure each of you know somebody who has it. We understand that everyone has a charity that is near and dear to them which you are probably already supporting. We are asking for you to walk with us as a show of support and/or just a nominal donation, if you can. 

Thanks to all our family, friends and colleagues for all of your kind words of encouragement and understanding during this transition in our lives. We're working diligently now to setup Jacksen to manage this successfully for his life. We know you each have a role in that and appreciate your support.

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 our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.

We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.  

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!
