Welcome to Team Tweed's JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
Team Tweed walks on behalf of several members of our immediate and extended family who have been affected by diabetes. Steph was diagnosed at age 6.5 with Type I and has lived with the disease for almost 16 years; Ty was diagnosed with Type I at age 5 and has lived with disease for a little over 11 years. Ted has lived with Type II for several years. In addition, Otto (Krista's grandfather) passed away many years ago due to complications of Type II. No matter what age you are diagnosed, diabetes takes a toll on those who live with the disease.
We walk in the hope that a cure for diabetes will be found in Ty and Steph's lifetime. Diabetes is a challenging disease to manage well on a daily basis. We love to dream of a day that Tyler and Steph don't have to deal with all of the daily management challenges.
Thank you for your support! Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications!
