Did you know that as many as 3 million Americans have Type 1 Diabetes? Each year nearly 15,000 children and 15,000 adults are newly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes - approximately 80 people per day!
Welcome to The Wild Things team page! We are Making Every Step Count to achieve JDRF's mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. 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. To do that, we need your help! Now more than ever, EACH of us can make a real difference in the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
Just click on the Join this Team button, become a walker - either real or virtual, make a donation and begin fundraising. Just pass the word on to everyone you know - It is simple, fast and fun! Plus it will make a real difference in lives like MINE that are affected by Type 1 Diabetes.
Even if you are unable to donate at this time, please join our team and pass the word on to others. You can help fullfill our secondary goal of having the biggest family walk team - of more than 150 people on January 26!
Thank you for your support and see you on Walk day! Remember, you are making a difference in My life, as well as the lives of millions of others with Type 1 Diabetes!
