We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!

We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.

In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference in your community by joining us? Just click “Join This Team” to become a team member and start fundraising. Or click “Donate to This Team” to make a donation.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. If you're wondering why Amy named our team, "Pump it Up," it's because she has been on an insulin pump since October 2012.  She had been doing shots for 13 years and decided to make the switch.  It has been working out quite well, and she always thinks of the 90s jam "Pump Up the Jam" when talking about pumps.  (It's a good one, if you haven't heard of it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EcjWd-O4jI) She's also "pumped" for this year's walk...get it!?  :)
