Team Ellie Marie is ready for our second Walk to Cure Diabetes. We had such an amazing time at our first walk last year. Our family and friends were so supportive, we raised over $4,ooo and had 48 walkers on our team that day. We can't wait to experience it again this year. Ellie has had a great year, she is in the 2nd grade and loves school. Her big sister, Sydney went off to college, and misses her alot but now seems to be enjoying the perks of being the only child at home. This will be Ellie's 5th year of taking dance classes and says she will "go to college for dance" (love that). Ellie started using an insulin pump this summer and things have been going great. She is so compliant with everything that has to be done on a daily basis. She is incredible! We are so thankful to have so many wonderful people in our lives. Our family, friends, all the people that help Ellie at school, everyone that Kevin and I work with, and all her doctors have been supportive through our journey.
We hope you can join Team Ellie Marie and walk with us or support us in any way you can. Our hope is to one day find a cure for diabetes and the funds raised by JDRF can make that possible.
