Putting an end to T1D, one step at a time

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!
wont you come out and walk with us! Let us turn type 1 into type none!

We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes and making a donation to help get rid of this disease. i was one of the millions of people who got hit with this disease.

In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. i have been doing all of this to keep healthy for 4 years now and i have been struggling to maintain good numbers but i am doing my best to stay healthy!

JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure. Every year we get more and more money and i hope we will get a lot this year to because like me a lot of people are just so anxious for a cure and with your help it will be soon i hope!

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference in your community by joining us? Just click “Join This Team” to become a team member and start fundraising. Or click “Donate to This Team” to make a donation. also if you can i would love for who ever wanted to come walk with me and my family for the cure!!

Thank you for your support!
