Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes AYCO Team page!
TURN TYPE ONE INTO TYPE NONE!
We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.
In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D 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 the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.

Whether you walk for your husband, your brother, your niece, your client, your daughter's friend, your college roommate, yourself, my son - please support the AYCO Team and help us TURN TYPE ONE INTO TYPE NONE!
