I’m fundraising for JDRF because I believe in their vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).
With T1D, a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
Please support my fundraiser by making a donation today!
If we hit the fundraiser's goal of $1,500 by September 30th, 2017, the sites managing editor Neil Roberts will wear a University of Washington Husky t-shirt to work on October 2nd, 2017.
If we go over the goal and raise $2,200 by September 30th, Neil will wear the shirt to the Twisted Lime (in Mill Creek, WA.) from open to close on Saturday October 7th, 2017. and you can take pictures with him, and post them online.
