We've been living with type 1 diabetes in our family for three years now. We've learned an incredible amount about this disease and everything we have to do to keep Robbie alive and healthy. JDRF has been a support to us from the very first day - Robbie received a special JDRF backpack with T1D information AND Rufus the teddy bear the day he was diagnosed. Rufus is a special teddy bear who wears a JDRF t-shirt and has patches on his body to show where he can get practice insulin shots. Robbie still sleeps with Rufus - and pretty much all of his stuffed animals have had insulin shots or blood sugar checks. JDRF also sponsors support groups in addition to supporting research to find a cure for diabetes and its complications
Be sure to check out Robbie's personal page to learn about his experience with type 1 diabetes.
The money our JDRF Walk Team raises will go directly to support this life-changing research. Our goal is to raise more money than we did last year - last year The Robbie Alliance raised $5,673!
The Madison walk is September 21 at 11am in Warner Park. Robbie would love to have more team members if you want to join us!
The JDRF Walk is a fantastic way to make a difference in the millions of lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes. For at least that one day, they will look around and see all the support they have from their friends, family and community. On Walk Day, everyone can have fun and celebrate how much closer to a cure we are because of their efforts.
