Join Gabby's DiaBEATERS in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to my JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes personal fundraising page!
Hello Friends and Family! We are so excited to get our team started for the Walk to Cure Diabetes! As you all know, Gabby was diagnosed on November 18, 2013 and since Gabby has matured and overcome so much, but her positive attitude and abilities to handle her diagnosis still does not make having T1D easy! We hope to see you all participate, donate and walk with our team to support Gabby and all others who live this struggle! Our main goal to to be able to say "Gabby HAD diabetes" and like Gabby says, "T1D can't stop me...we will kick diabetes butt" :) Thanks to everyone, Mike, Erika & Gabrielle
I'm joining this year's Walk 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.
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 donate to my Walk fundraising efforts today. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease.
