Welcome to Team Brandi!
This will be our third year walking in support of Brandi's battle with Type 1 Diabetes and we hope you'll join us for a day full of family fun, all while raising money for a great cause! Bring your kids, bring your friends and parents...heck, bring your dog too!
There are two routes to choose from, 3 miles or 1 mile, or if you're unable to walk you can still join our team and cheer your fellow members as they cross the finish line. As always there will be lots of fun things for the kids prior to the start of the walk.
We've chosen to raise money for the JDRF for a couple of reasons. First, because the were not only the FIRST organization to reach out to Brandi after her initial diagnoses, but they have continued to offer and provide support throughout the almost 9 years following her diagnoses. JDRF not only provides written material and support groups for people with Type 1 diabetes on a continuing bases, but last year alone they funded more than $116 MILLION in T1D research. Research for a cure, research on new treatment options, new medications, and the possibilty of actually preventing another family of ever getting the devastating diagnoses we did.
So join us for a day of fun as we walk to cure diabetes!
