We will turn Type One into Type None

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!

Thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on Walk day!



Here's a bit of my story-

After a battle with a nasty virus in 1994, my health began to change. My family started to notice changes in me such as fatigue, frequent urination, and bad breath. After getting sick at JC Penny,  I was diagnosed with T1D.  I was only 5 years old and spent Halloween of 1994 in a hospital. I was recently hospitalized for 3 days, one of them spent in the ICU, with Diabetic Ketoscodosis. Slowly but surely I've gotten back to normal, but this is why we need to find better technology and a cure. Not just for me, but for everyone else that has and continues to fight this never ending,  24/7 battle.

Every dollar counts whether you choose to walk with us or not! Thank you for your contribution!
