Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
It's that time of year again and I'm very excited to announce the 2nd annual "Team Gigi" Walk to Cure Diabetes sponsored by Battery Systems! I hope you can all join us and help gather up as many donations as we can to surpass our incredible total last year!! Tell your co-workers, tell your friends and join TEAM GIGI!!
As many of you may know, my daughter, Ginger has been living with Type 1 Diabetes for the past 7 years of her life. At age 5, she was thrust into a life of insulin injections and finger pricks that by now are into the thousands and will be that way until we find a cure. Ginger has handled this so well and I'm so proud of her but not many days go by that she doesn't think about life without the constant attention to her health that this disease requires. We all pray for a day when she can wake up and not have to worry about what her Blood Glucose number is, how many carbs are in a snack, or when the last time she changed her pump set. With your help, we can make her dream of a cure, a reality.
With this walk, 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 joining our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
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.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It’s simple, fast, and fun!
Thank you for your support, and we will see you on Walk day!
