Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!
Welcome to our Team Will & Maddie JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
Our families are taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure. Our children need insulin in order to live.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
There are some amazing technologies on the horizon, such as an artificial pancreas that would eliminate alot of work and worry for our families. JDRF is on the forefront of this technology and we're so excited about it - but funds are needed for this project to continue.
Please support us and join our team and/or donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people. Won't you please join us in this effort?
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
