Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page, and welcome to Nick's Volunteers! We are gearing up to WALK TO CURE DIABETES in the Atlanta Walk on October 20, 2012!
As many of you know, Nicholas was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in early August. While this has has certainly brought a few changes to his life, we realize that those challenges are overcomeable. For those of you that know Nicholas, you know that he has an indomitable spirit; ready to take on any challenge! Now that challenge is not only to deal with the his own day-to-day struggles, but to work to support others that share this disease; helping them find the courage and strength that they need to deal with this disease. We are truly excited about this next chapter in his very special life!!!
To that end, we are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of all those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.
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. It?s simple, fast, and fun!
Thank you for your support, and we?ll see you on Walk day!
