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

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

I'm 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. I know several people who have Type 1 diabetes and have been touched by there experiences through school and sports.

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 first time running to beat the bridge by donating 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!
