Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
We are taking the 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.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. We are asking for your support. Now more than ever, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
My son, Carson, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 2 days after his 6th birthday. What a way to spend your birthday with 3 days in the hospital right? His diagnosis has really changed our lives. Carson's diabetes needs constant attention. To stay alive, people with type 1 diabetes must take multiple insulin injections daily or continually infuse insulin through a pump. Each day, everyday, for the rest of Carson's life he will have to careully monitor food and insulin intake, as well as exercise to maintain a careful balance and avoid high or low blood sugar reactions that can be life-limiting or life threatening.
I am asking for your support to either join our team at the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes or just simply make a personal donation.
Just click on the ?Join this Team? button, make a donation and begin fundraising. It?s simple, fast and fun!
Thank you for your support and see you on Walk day!
