We will turn Type One into Type None

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!  We are walking for more than 700 children and young adults in the UW Pediatric Diabetes Clinic who live every day with type 1 diabetes. As we walk, we also celebrate the life of a good friend and mentor, Todd Varness MD, whose passionate advocacy continues to serve as an example for each of us. 

We're taking steps to help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes 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....yet. You can help change that.

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!
