I'm participating in Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!

Max Fisher, stoked to complete Insulin Pump Therapy class (2014)

    Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the 32nd Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!

    Our family has joined along with our friends on team "Free Sisyphus". This is our first time participating in response to our son Max’s type 1 diabetes diagnosis last year. In 2014 we will have four children with diabetes on our team, all from our own community. We need your help more than ever. 

    It's open to anyone who wants to join. And if you can't join us, you can consider supporting us with a donation! Every year the event helps to raise awareness and funding to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money raised will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan... to end T1D.

    T1D is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, which the body needs to get energy from food. Managing the disease requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

    JDRF is working every day to change that. And, as the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research, every dollar JDRF directs toward its research plan comes from donors like you.

    Please support my commitment and donate to my fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.

    Thank you for your support!
