We will turn Type One into Type None

Hi Everyone,
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out PosiTiffy's Team page for JDRF, and helping us support Diabetes Research.  

We saved their generic but very informative message below but I wanted to put in my own.

I created team PosiTiffy because my cousin Therese coined the phrase PosiTiffy after I’ve been on such a positive life changing path the past few years, and plan to continue it for a lifetime.  Also huge thanks to my cousin Rachel for pushing me to get this walk together!   


Huge thanks to all my team members the last two years who helped us achieve and surpass our fundraising goals, last year our goal was $2000 and we raised over $3100!! this year we hope to blow that goal out of the water!!! 

Join Team PosiTiffy September 12th 2014 7pm-12am at the Lo Kai in Dracut MA for a fundraiser https://www.facebook.com/events/1399012240370850/

As many who are close to me may know I am not the world’s best diabetic, in fact at times I’ve been called the world’s worst; Being hospitalized in Januaury of 2011 for Diabetic Ketoacidosis or DKA which can be life threatening has helped to push me towards taking control of my diabetes and not letting it control me.  Admittedly i've slacked at times, however I strongly believe there is no time like the present to change that.  With recently graduating nursing school and wanting to further my education to eventually become a nurse practitioner and go into endocrinology to work with kids and related to kids with diabetes getting back on track is now my #1 goal, and setting this walk as my motivation I think will greatly help me reach my goals of becoming a healthier diabetic while helping to raise money for a cure! (and enjoying a fun day at six flags as well!)

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my teams page, and to help us stomp out Type 1 Diabetes.  

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!  

We are taking steps to help JDRF achieve its goal of improving the lives of all people affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. By joining our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us to raise funds to directly support research with the greatest potential to conquer this disease.

We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.  

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It’s simple, fast, and fun!
