Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
This particular team was setup by Celina Dixon (firstname.lastname@example.org) in honor of the great youtuber and Let's Player, MARKIPLIER! Mark has been a big inspiration with fundraisers with the mounds of money he has raised in his livestreams for cancer. This year, I will be walking with Markiplier shirts! I'm hoping I can receive help from Mark's amazing fans- the Markiplites- to donate to JDRF and find the cure to this terrible illness T1D.
I watch Mark's videos every day, and I try to keep up with his livestreams. I am a big fan of his (though I'm no ChibiSugar ;3) and I really hope we can help each other out. My goal is to raise 1,000$ by October.
If anyone who wants to attend the actual walk, In Atlanta GA at Centennial Olympic Park, I would love to meet some fellow Markiplier fans and gamers!! Email me if you have any questions. Also, please show this page to Mark, so that maybe we can get him to do a Charity Livestream for this Team!
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D 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 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.
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!
