    JDRF Walk 2012

We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!  

This year we are walking for two very special reasons, Carey (CareCare) and Kobe (Monster).  Carey was diagnosed with T1D at age 11, and has been battling it for 30 years.  Kobe was recently diagnosed with type 1 in August, 2012, also at age 11.  Kobe and Carey are sources of inspiration to our family.  While facing the many hardships that accompany type 1 diabetes, both have an uncanny ability to stay positive, upbeat, and to never stop smiling.  Carey and Kobe are deeply loved not only by our family, but also by our community as a whole.  We are blessed to have not one but two members of our family who can bring such joy to others!  Our family is very excited to fundraise for JDRF, for our "Diabetic Best Friends" and all those facing type 1 diabetes!

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!

Thank you for your support, and we will see you on Walk day!
