Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Lee, I and the girls are taking steps (2.5 miles worth) 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.
This past year, Andrea lost a friend due to complications from type 1 diabetes. They met while she was working at JDRF at the Columbus office where he was a Youth Ambassador for the chapter. He was a vibrant teenager and very passionate about finding a cure, he was full of energy and hope that he would live a long life. His disease, type 1 diabetes, had other plans. He was 21 years young when he passed away.
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.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
