Welcome to the Team Cheryliscious JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!
I am a teacher. My advisees, who are now all seniors, have decided to help raise money for Type 1 Diabetes research, education and support. It is theiir parting gift to me, their teacher who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for the past 44 years.
I'll be taking part in this year's Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin - a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. I as diagnosed at age 11. My daughter was diagnosed at 4 years of age. T1D cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
Please support my team and donate to my Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?
Thank you for your support!
