Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
In years past, we have given you the sad stats about the devastaing effects of Type 1 Diabetes. This year our walk will be very different.
This year, we are not only walking for Gabe. We are walking for my sister Kim. Kim was my best friend, and a 2nd Mom to my kids, and always our biggest cheerleader. Kim passed away very unexpectedly in December.
One of the first things that Gabe asked me after we found out that we had lost Kim was, "How can we do the walk without Kim?" My feelings exactly. But Kim would HATE that. She would want Gabe's Posse to grow and thrive. Not because she cannot be here, but because she wanted to find a cure for Gabe. Kim was my biggest helper for this event.
Kim made a 110% effort to help learn how to care for Gabe and his Diabetes. She was not about to let that change how much time she spent with him. Chris and I will never forget how much that meant to us.
Please consider joining Gabe's Posse. Whether you walk, donate, pray or think of us, we appreciate it. We want to try to foster Kim's wonderfully philanthropic spirit, and this one very close to her heart.
One of the nicest things that a friend of Kim conveyed was, in essence, that Kim had done so many good things in her short life, that God wanted us all to step up our game. She would love that.
If you are joining, and want a Gabe's Posse t-shirt, let me know. Kim's friend Nita is helping Gabe to design them.
Hope to see you!
