Give me a hand;
I?ll give you my feet;
Together diabetes we will defeat.
Let me tell you a little about my team.
We are family team Sweet Steps. Team Sweet Steps has been walking in the JDRF walk for 6 years now. We have been walking in honor of Nyoka Herd. Nyoka is the team captain grandmother who died back in 1996 at the early age of 53. She had become diabetic at a late age of 32. Back in the early 1990?s there was very little information about controlling this disease and how to life with it. She lived with this disease for about 20 years and struggled everyday with it. Between finger pokes and insulin shots, this disease took over her life.
My Team and I are walking and raising money so we can prevent this disease from taking over the life of anyone one else; The money we raise will be used to find new and improved ideas to make life work with diabetes.
We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
