As many of you know, our sweet Ellie was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes late last year. Even though our journey has been challenging, Ellie consistently amazes us with her courage and endless smiles. We decided from day 1 that we would control this disease and not let it control us. Diabetes cannot steal our joy!
How fun would it be to spend a fall morning in the city...walking for a cure...with great friends and family?! We truly believe awareness and research will benefit our little girl. We believe in miracles! Please consider joining our team in spirit, funding, or walking : )
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. 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!
