Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
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. Also, it will allow us diabetics to enjoy delicious high-carbohydrate foods such as pancakes, pizza, milkshakes, Reece's peanut butter cups, and so many more, without having to worry about stupid insulin adjustments! 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. Plus one time I had a low blood sugar episode and totalled a Zipcar with a schizophrenic man in it, it totally blew, and Zipcar executives still are probably trying to find me and kill me. I blame diabetes!
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. It sucks so hard.
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!
