Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page! We are taking the steps to help achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
Jordan was diagnosed on April 10th, 2011 with Type 1 Diabetes. He has taken this information very well and will be dealing with this the rest of his life. He knows that he can live a very fulfilling life as long as he takes care of himself everyday. Jordan has asked that we set up a team for the 3rd year to walk for the cure and raise money to help with the research.
Everyone always asks "How many times a day does Jordan have to check his sugar?" and my answer is always well on an average day at least 4 times and then if it is a game day then it is 4 times a day plus before every game, 1 hour into each game and then usually an hour after the game. The other question I get is "How many times does he have to have an insulin shot?" and my answer to that is 4, before every meal and before bed everyday. With this research hopefully we can make life easier for all the children and adults that live with diabetes.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research.
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
