Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the 32nd Annual Nordstrom Beat the Bridge to Beat Diabetes!
Our whole family is joining this year's event to raise funds to improve the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF advance its strategic research plan to end T1D.
Our family is participating this year as part of Team Maggienificent to show our support for the daily challenges our friends face and to help raise awareness of 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 our commitment and donate to our fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference not only for sweet Maggie Jane but for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
Thank you for your support!
Michele, Ken, Claire and Lily Miyoshi
