Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!!
This year our team has chosen to spread awareness for some heros along with the walk for our fight for a cure. On october 5th we will be celebrating the lives of type one diabetics and alert dogs who assist in fighting this battle everyday. One day a cure will be found, but until then we have Diabetic Alert Dogs to team with us. These dogs bring true meaning to a man's best friend. They are a family member, a tool, a best friend, a hero, a glucose meter, a shoulder to lean on, and a healthy future for diabetics. We invite everyone to join us on this day of celebrating our stand against juvenile diabetes. Please join our team in raising money and awareness of juvenile diabetes. The funds needed for the research on new ways of treating type one diabetes and a search for the cure is astounding. JDRF is taking a stand to cure, treat, and prevent. JDRF provided more than $116 million for type one diabetes research last year. Diabetes is one of the costliest diseases in the united states just in an attempt to stay healthy living with it. The annual cost for healthcare was $11,700 for each person with diabetes in the U.S. in 2009. Statistics show approximately 80 people per day are diagnosed with type one diabetes in the U.S. We fight to beat this disease everyday. Join in our battle for a day to give diabetics the strength to win!
