Every year, my family and friends team up to raise money for the JDRF! I was diagnosed way back when I was six...so, two years ago. A lot has changed since last year for me though... I now have the T-Slim pump AND a new baby brother!! His name is Steven. I'm a pretty happy big brother! My favorite things right now are legos, hotwheels and reading. I love bike riding and I am excited for the walk! If you would like to be part of my team, join!!! Last year, our team raised over $1000 and this year we bumped our goal up to see if we can raise double that to help the 15,000 kids who have to deal with Type I Diabetes. If you can't and would like to donate, you can also donate on this page. Thank you in advance for all of your help to find a cure!!!
Here is some information about what we are walking for.
We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and making a donation to JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.
The challenge we've set ourselves - to raise money for JDRF and to walk - is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease.
Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? Just click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and start fundraising.
Thank you for your support, and we'll see you on Walk day!
