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.
I would love for you to join our walk team. I have been living with and dealing with Type 1 Diabetes for over a year now. I am writing because it is that time of year again when my family, friends and I walk to raise money for research to find a cure for this forever life changing disease.
In July I got my insulin pump that I am connected to 24 hours a day/7 days a week. But it is better then having 5 shots a day. It has made my life a little more normal that I can eat things more freely and ore often then when I was on shots. But everything I eat has to be entered into my pump to be accounted for. I have to change my infusion site every three days. Everyday is a balancing act between food, activity and insulin.
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!
