Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
We are walking to raise money for a cure to Diabetes this weekend. Our team name is Michaela's Sunshine in honor of Michaela Taman who passed earlier this year. Michaela was a good friend of our 11 year old daughter Sydney and she lived with diabetes. Our family will walk to help share the joy that Michaela shared with us, the happiness and laughter she brought to our lives. Her mom Ginny shared that they would always sing you are my sunshine. This is to remind all of us that her Sunshine is still shining down on all of us from above. We walk for Michaela, her mom Ginny, dad Hank and brothers Austin and Tucker.
Knowing it's short notice our goal is to raise $500. Also if you want to walk, register under team name Michaela's Sunshine and choose team captain Chandra Linquist. We are getting t-shirts, let us know sizes and we can try to get you one to wear on race day. Registration is 7:30 AM and walk begins at 9 AM.
Sydney and Michaela
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.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day! We will send out a meeting place for Race Day once we get closer. Keep our phone numbers close and you can always call. Remember to go to registration on walk day first and then find our group.
