Four years ago Roselveth was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of two. Since then we have watched him strive to live a normal life despite the constant demands of this disease. Roselveth rarely complains about the daily finger pokes and insulin injections. He is a constant inspiration with his courage and attitude. Roselveth's dream is to be just like every other kid. Our family is committed more than ever to make his dream a reality.
In an effort to raise money to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and to encourage and support Roselveth, we formed Roselveth's Round-Up and joined JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes. JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is the largest non-profit, non-governmental funder of Type 1 Diabetes research worldwide. We strongly believe that supporting JDRF is the best way we can work towards finding a cure. This year's walk will be held on Saturday, February 23rd at the Mall of America.
Please consider helping us in our efforts to reach our goal and make a difference for Roselveth and others suffering from this devastating disease. Here are some ways you can help:
Join Roselveth's Round-Up and walk with us on February 23rd. You can collect money from folks you know, including yourself, and then join us at the walk. It's just a fun, leisurely 1 hour walk inside the Mall of America, with no set distance requirement!
Just ask 10 of your friends to donate $10 each (the cost of packing a bag lunch instead of going out for 1 day, or the cost of 2 cups of Caribou/Starbucks Coffee) and you will have raised $100!
Make a contribution in support of Roselveth's Round-Up. You can either donate online or send your tax-deductible contribution to our home address made payable to JDRF and contact others in your circle of family and friends to contribute as well.
We thank you for taking the time to listen and as always, your prayers are also appreciated.
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).
