Welcome to the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page for Leanne's Fans!
If you find yourself reading this page, it means you most likely feel invested in the mission of the JDRF and would also like to support our team. The great news is that it's easy to join the Walk to Cure Diabetes. Simply click "Join this Team," make a donation, and begin fundraising. Simple as that.
Your mission as part of Leanne's Fans will be to help us reach a team goal of $500. Leanne was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 10 years old and invites you to visit her page to learn more about her story. As a team, we are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those like Leanne who face the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes—they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, and to achieve more.
The 2013 Walk to Cure Diabetes in St. Louis, MO will take place in Forest Park on October 6th. Once you've registered as part of Leanne's Fans, you’ll find fundraising tips and tools in your Participant Center. While our team goal is to raise $500, your individual goal may vary. Keep in mind that every walker is encouraged to raise $100. Ask your friends, family, co-workers, religious leaders, dentist, and community leaders to join our team or donate too!
Remember, the goal of the JDRF is simple: to raise funds to support research that will lead to a cure for type 1 diabetes. As you raise funds for the JDRF, know that you are supporting millions of people around the world that are connected to diabetes in one way or another and that you are contributing to the future cure for this disease.
Thank you for your support! Whether or not you can physically come to the walk in St. Louis, we'd love for you to join our team as either a virtual walker (meaning you can raise money online in support of Leanne's Fans) or by walking with us at the event. Thanks again!
