Welcome to my personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page! 

Hello family and friends,

On September 13th, I will be walking for diabetes in honor of my cousin's daughter Amiyah, who was diagnosed at age 3 with Type 1 diabetes. Her days are filled with checking her insulin pump as well as not being able to enjoy fun foods that most little kids over-indulge in. Some days are a large struggle for her and her family, but Amiyah is a fighter! The Walk raises funds for JDRF's strategic plan to end T1D, a serious autoimmune disease, by delivering new treatments that progressively remove the daily burden, side effects, and complications of the disease.

As I count down to the big day on 9/13/2014, I am asking you to support my commitment to raise money for this critically needed research. Donating online is quick and easy using my personal fundraising page!

Another great option is to join us in the walk. It is a free walk around the Zoo for a great cause. Families enjoy seeing the animals and making a difference for JDRF. We understand that a lot of you donate to many good causes, so please don't worry if you can't make a donation at this time.

Thank you for your support and for helping JDRF to create a world without T1D.

Thank you for your support!
