I'm participating in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
It's that time of year again, the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. In the past seven years, our local walk has raised over two million dollars!! The money you have donated and helped raise goes to research to fund a cure for type 1 Diabetes. We are all ready for a cure!!
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Your support has and will continue to fund research to improve the quality of life and ultimately find a cure. We are so grateful for your support and generosity.
Ben is a freshman in high school now. He was diagosed over eight years ago, just before he entered first grade. Ben wears an insulin pump 24/7 to manage his diabetes. He continues to be a hero in our eyes as he faces this disease day in and day out.
Thank you for your continued support! One day, we will all be celebrating the cure!
