Welcome Team "Abby Ad Infinitum" Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
Update 9/23 - we are ready to go! Leaving in just a few minutes to make the drive to Spokane to help setup and go on the walk. If it is possible for you, we would appreciate any donations, -no matter how small - to go towards helping find Abby's, and so many others, cure. There will be a cure and $1 donated is $1 more than they had...and may just be the dollar that makes the difference...Even if you don't/can't donate, thanks at least for reading this. Coming here shows you care.....Love, Don, abby & Kurt
Abby, Kurt and I will once again be participating not only in the Walk to Cure Diabetes on Sunday, Sept. 23rd, 2012 at Riverfront Park, Spokane, but ALSO in the First Annual Kettle Falls, Washington Walk to Cure Diabetes on Sept. 30th! We're really looking forward to doing this and helping to make a difference in finding a cure.
Once again I volunteered this year at the diabetes CampSTIX. And once again I was amazed and humbled at seeing these kids together sharing their stories, learning new things about diabetes and having a great time in the company of many others that have similar experiences to their own.
While the camp experience was modeled for them to just have fun, many of these kids and their families will be at the JDRF Walk in Spokane and/or in KettleFalls doing what they can to help researchers find the cure they need.
I hope that by coming to this site you may be inspired to also do what you can to help find a cure so that one day they can throw away all their syringes, insulin bottles, pumps and other medical supplies that their lives now depend on. On this page you will find information on how to donate to JDRF and help them fund the needed research. Following this is also a message with additional information from JDRF.
Thank you so much for supporting us and JDRF. Don, Abby & Kurt
We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
Each member of our team is already hard at work in their fundraising. If you have taken time to visit our team page today, we ask that you consider making a donation or joining our team.
