Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We're taking steps to help JDRF remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear this disease. By joining our Walk team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure. JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set for ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
In an effort to raise awareness and help us reach our fundraising goal, Team Rehydrate Life will be donating 50% of all earnings through our Independent Advocare Distributorship toward the Walk. Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising!
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
