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 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!
A year and a half ago, my sister called my mom to tell her she thought something was wrong with Nadia. As she said the words that she used to describe Nadia at the time, weight loss, thirsty, tired, etc., Juvenile Diabetes never came to our mind. The next day was a day that I would never forget. My sister called me to tell me they have to rush Nadia to the hospital because her sugar was over 600! The doctors kept telling us how lucky we were because my sister took her just in time. Just a few days before Christmas, Nadia was in the hospital with her parents as my mom & I took care of Nadia's infant brother. During that time we realized our lives would never be the same. My sister & her family will always have our love & support. It breaks my heart to watch my niece get an insulin shot every time she eats or when she says, "I wish I didn't have this disease!' So, we walk to find a cure for her and every one living with T1D.
Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on Walk day!
