Why we are joining JDRF at the Walk to Cure Diabetes:
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Our team will be walking at two locations on October 27, 2013! Please join Suite Feat at 9pm at the Philadelphia Museum of Art or Rockford Park, Wilmington. Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!

Your contribution and fundraising makes sure those with T1D live healthier lives today, and someday, a life free of T1D. Wyatt, a JDRF Youth Ambassador says:
Take the first step and be a hero to someone with T1D!
