It's that time again! On October 22, 2017, Team Frank's Footers will once again be taking part in JDRF One Walk to change the future for everyone affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
This is a special year for Frank's Footers. This will be our 10th Anniversary Walk! With T1D, there are no days off. I have to test my blood sugar several times a day and pay close attention to what I eat. I worry about things like keeping a balance between blood sugar lows and highs. It’s a lot for someone my age to have to think about every day.
By walk day 2017, I will have endured over 43,000 finger sticks, more than 3,000 injections, and almost 1,400 insulin pump infusion set changes. I will have walked 55 K at the Walks and added miles raising awareness and fundraising for our cause. I do it because the promising research JDRF is funding gives me hope that I won't have to live with T1D forever!
