Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
As you know, T1D hit us personally with two of our own children, Peyton (now 16, diagnosed at 10) and Kayden (now 9, diagnosed at 6) and our friend Conner Moser. In recent years we have seen first hand the challenges these children go through on a day-to-day basis. They not only endure through constant finger pricks and insulin delivery on a daily basis, but just as importantly the emotional challenges that goes with the disease has been as difficult. The little things add up, for example dealing with friends, dealing with sports, missing school more than average, and the added concern when common illness occurs that causes major spikes in blood sugars.
We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. We are asking for your support. Now more than ever, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
