Welcome to Benny's Brigade, our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
We are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
Our team is named for Benny G., our nephew/cousin, who was diagnosed with T1 at 23 months. He'll be 9 at the end of this year, and we're so proud of how he's doing. We just wish he didn't have to deal with this disease--we wish NO ONE did! So, we're walking in his honor to help fund reasearch for a cure.
We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.
Thank you for your support!
