Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page for my little HERO Jared!
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease. It has change our family's lives and will stand with Jared until the day we can say our son WAS type one diabetic.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure YET.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support Jared and his team by donateing to his Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Every dollar is a dollar todays a day without injections, pokes, highs and lowes. My money is on Jared.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
