Welcome to 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 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 our daughter Jordan who faces the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we give more, do more, and achieve more. She is truly our hero. Over the past 4 and 1/2 years, she's dealt with extreme blood sugars (both highs and lows), experienced a hypoglycemic seizure for which she was hopitalized, and contracted Celiac Disease due to her comprised immune system. Through it all, she's remained steadfast and is one of the bravest little girls we know. She never complains and accepts her fate with a quiet dignity and grace that baffles even her very proud parents. She encourages other children within our TD1 support group, but most importantly has never allowed this disease to define who she is.
We'd like to invite you to walk with us on Nov 3 at Tempe Town Lake. All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button and make a donation if that's something you feel you can do! We thank you all in advance for supporting our cause. In a world where there is so much need, so many places to give, sharing in our "journey" is so very much appreciated!!
Thank you for your support, and we?ll see you on Walk day!
