UDare Skate for the Cure - Help support juvenile diabetes research and the UD figure skating national team!
Welcome to our fundraising page!
The money raised will help to support JDRF and the University of Delaware's Figure Skating team! As the 2014 Intercollegiate National Figure Skating Champions and a student run organization we need to find creative ways to raise money to fund our team but wanted to find a greater cause to give back to as well. Our team decided that JDRF was the cause that inspired us the most. Finding a way to raise money and awareness for a disease that has also affected 2 members of our team made our connection to the cause that much stronger.
We have joined Team JDRF to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.
Our team is dedicated to winning the National Intercollegiate Figure Skating Championships title, while maintaining mutual respect and integrity for all team members. Together, we strive to create and foster an environment that will enrich the collegiate experience through championship performance, friendship, high moral standards, and the principles of good sportsmanship.
