Welcome to Team Sweet Suzy's page for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes!
It has been over year since my life changed drastically when I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Overnight I went from being a carefree teenager to someone who had to learn about insulin injections, glucose meters, low sugar, high sugar and what it meant to count carbs for every bite of food I ate. Since April 2013, I have been using an insulin pump in hopes of controlling my diabetes better.
How Can You Help
On May 17, 2014, I will be walking in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes at Holiday World. I would love for you to join my team and walk with us that day. Money raised will help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining Team Sweet Suzy and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.
Team Sweet Suzy raised $1,400 for the 2013 walk. It was the team's first year to participate. This year our goal is $1,500.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us on May 17?

IMPORTANT - In order to walk with us at Holiday World, each person will need to raise a minimum of $100 in order to get a free ticket to the park! The actual walk takes place inside Holiday World so a park ticket is required to participate.
Even if you cannot join us at Holiday World for the walk on Saturday, May 17, you can still donate as a virtual walker. All we need you to do is click on Donate to this Team or a Team Member on our team page.
Thank you for your support of T1D and Team Sweet Suzy!
