The 2017 JDRF One Walk is being held on City Island in Harrisburg on Sunday, November 5! Our Third Annual Cabaret Night got us off to a great start with about $7,000 from one night alone! Your generosity over the past few years has been humbling, and we truly don’t like to ask for more donations. But until there is a cure, we will keep fighting.
Each year we have been involved with JDRF and Type One Diabetes in general, so many amazing advances in science and technology have occurred. The past year is no different. Because of this, we have hope. This is due to overwhelming support from family and loved ones who show their generosity, their heart, and attach a sweet face like Davis’s to this disease.
Davis continues to inspire. We could not be prouder of his resiliency with this. So many families affected by Type One tend to define themselves and their actions by the disease. We choose not to. We live our lives normally, but adapt some activities and practices necessary to keep D alive (and all of us sane!). And you know what? He rocks through it. We have been shown so much love, so much support since 12/12/12 (his diagnosis date), and it’s overwhelming. Keep in mind, it is not surprising, as we surround ourselves with a variety of rock stars and Hogwarts/Ilvermorny wizards like you.
The future of DA4D is a good one. We have our amazing new logo, an official website (da4d.org) for our own progress and events (like Cabaret Night), and aspire to be a model One Walk team for our local chapter of JDRF. We also now have our own official beer, DA4D Butterbeer, made in conjunction with Tattered Flag Brewery & Still Works! We know your hearts and prayers are all with us. And frankly, on our really down days, that is what carries us. The fundraising part is really just a way for Davis to see what we can do as a family, as a team, as an Army.
Your donation will count towards the team's fundraising total. In addition, please give credit to the person that asked for your support to recognize them for their efforts in creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
