Hello and welcome to Team Panke's JDRF Walk 2013 page!!!
This year's walk is Sunday October 6th at Forest Park in the upper Muny parking lot. Registration opens at 9:00 and the walk starts at 10:00. There is a 1 mile and 3 mile walk so you have a choice of whatever best works for you. This event is family friendly, with a petting zoo, inflatebles and much more, so feel free to bring out the whole family and have some fun.
If there is enough interest I woudl like to order team T-shirts. It looks like they will be around $9.00ea, maybe less if enough people would like one. (JDRF does not provide these t-shirts, this cost goes strictly to the shirts. Donations are seperate.) Please let me know by the 18th if you are interested in getting a shirt and what size. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
In case you are unfamilure with JDRF and what this walk is about here is a bit of info. JDRF is working to 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. If you are unable to participate in the walk please consider making a donation. Online donations are easy and secure.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
