I'm going to Beat the Bridge for my buddies Sam and Sam!

My running partner Sam. He's a little kid. I should be able to keep up ... his legs are shorter than mine. I am a PDA (Parent Designated Adult) trained to do whatever Sam needs. He knows CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation)  and can do whatever I might need.

    Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the 31st Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes! This year, I'll be participating in this incredible event in my community, along with thousands of others, to raise $1.5 million in support of JDRF and to improve the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you ask people with T1D, they will tell you it is difficult and life threatening.  And they know it never goes away.  

    Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas.  While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. 

    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 with 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?

    Thank you for your support!
