We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!  We are walking to raise money to find a cure for diabetes. My little sister Sophia was diagnosed with diabetes July of 2010. I hope we raise enough money to find a cure because my sister always has to wait to eat her food and has a tough time when she has to stop playing so she can test her blood sugar.

The money our JDRF Walk Team, SOPHIA'S HOPE, raises will go directly to support this life-changing research to help Sophia and lots of other people with this disease.

The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. This walk means alot to me because every time my sister tells someone she has diabetes she always says "It stinks" and if JDRF finds a cure it would really put big smile on my sister's face and my whole familys' faces too. 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.

Each member of our team is already hard at work in their fundraising.

Thank you. Together, we will cure type 1 diabetes and its complications!
