Welcome to the ‘CedeBugs JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!
My name is Mercedes. I am a 21-year-old college student studying Business (Sustainability) at Arizona State University. I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was twelve years old (which is relatively old compared to some Diabetics). As most of you know, I try not to let it slow me down. I currently work full-time as well as have a full course load. This walk is important to me because you are not only helping to improve my life; but more importantly, you are helping us prevent future generations from struggling from the hardships of Diabetes.
JDRF focuses its effort on improving the lives of all people affected by Type I Diabetes by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, treating, and prevention. Please join our team to help us raise funds to directly support Type I Diabetes research.
If you are planning on walking and interested in ordering team shirts, email me at CedeBugsJDRF@gmail.com by October 19th for more information.
Thank you for your support, and we will see you on November 2nd!
