We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to Cooper's Troopers Walk to Cure Diabetes Team Page!  

Thank you for walking with us this year! And, helping JDRF improve the lives of everyone affected by type 1 diabetes. By joining our Walk Team and making a donation, you will be helping us raise funds to directly support research that has the greatest potential to conquer this disease.

We are motivated every year by Cooper, and the courage and perseverance he shows in facing the challenges of type 1 diabetes. He is the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more.

We’re also reminded of how fortunate we are to be surrounded by such a strong support system of family, friends, teachers, nurses, and neighbors who make each day for Coop a little easier. Thank you!

We realize there are many devastating diseases. With juvenile diabetes, curing it forever is extremely attainable and within reach. The advances in the last year alone provide us with incredible hope. Our goal is to send Coop off to college diabetes-free. Our mission is to help him avoid the long-term complications.

Thanks for helping us make a difference in the lives of these kids impacted by this disease. All you need to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, walk with us, consider making a donation, or begin fundraising.

This year we are also joined by the folks at Webb Ford in Highland, IN who have generously offered to donate $1,500 to Cooper’s Troopers. Thank you, Webb Ford!

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