Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
Walk for Diabetes! Walk for Wesley!
My son, Wesley, was diagnosed in November 2013 at 18 months old. I knew Wesley would have minor bumps and bruises as he grew up but we never imagined he would develop Type 1 Diabetes!
Together, our team is walking to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin – a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure – yet. Your support of JDRF can help change that. JDRF is the one organization with the plan, influence, and ability to lessen the burden of this disease until it no longer exists.
By donating or joining our team today, you can help JDRF fund research that impacts the lives of the millions of children, adults, and families challenged by T1D every single day. With your support, we will turn Type One into Type None. Thank you.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
