Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
Last year our team of rebel "skywalkers" descended on downtown Des Moines to wage a battle against Type I diabetes. This year, Devin's Force will regroup on May 10, 2014 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds to continue the fight to find a cure for this dark disease.
As many of you know, Devin was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in August 2009. Our family is so proud of how well Devin handles all the finger pricks, shots, dietary restrictions, and site changes for his insulin pump, but as parents we always have hope for a cure so this doesn't have to be a lifelong disease for him. He motivates us to do what we can to raise money for the research needed to make that happen. "The force is strong with this one!"
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. Simple, fast, and fun!
If you are unable to join us for the walk, would you please consider making a donation to JDRF? Type I, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people like Devin, and JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. This organization funds more Type I diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
If you would like to mail your donation rather than donating online, you may send a check, made payable to JDRF to:
208 Balfour Drive
Norwalk, IA 50211
Thank you so much for your generosity, and "May the Force be with you!"
