Welcome to the Begging Burros Team Page!
Congrats on finding this page and making the first step in helping to find a cure for diabetes. As you may know, I have type 1 diabetes. I started my walk team, the Begging Burros, in 2004. Over the past 8 years the team has raised over $10,000 for a cure. The team started out small with only about twenty walkers the first year. Last year we had over 50 walkers. Lets keep the team growing! I named the team Begging Burros instead of "Jenny's Team" because it is OUR team not my team. Anyone can invite anyone else. The more the merrier. We always do fun stuff with our team related to team themes...think of high school spirit days or Halloween! Last year we had a wild animal team and went wild with animal hats and animal print socks. One year we were a Star Wars theme complete with light sabers. This year is a sports theme. I encourage everyone, whether you play soccer five times a week or can't tell a volleyball from a bowling ball to go out in your favorite sports attire. Soccer socks, sweatbands, hockey gloves you name it!
Let's not forget, though, why we are here. We want to have fun and raise money for diabetes. 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.
If you are joining the team, or if you are not, please consider making a donation. Every dollar helps. Just click Donate at the top of this page. If you would prefer to donate by cash or check please email me at Jennenergy@gmail.com or call/text my cell at (858) 414-2160
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.
Thank you. Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications!
