Welcome to my JDRF Fundraising Page!
Many of you know that since 2011- when Hannah was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes- it has become my personal mission to aggressively fundraise for JDRF. I want to help turn Type 1 into Type None.
Donations are needed now more than ever. Because of the pandemic, all in-person fundraising events are canceled... but that won't stop me! I will still be challenging myself physically, hoping to inspire YOU to donate. I will be doing my own 'sprint' Triathlon right in my hometown of Newton. And Adrian and I will be cycling 100 miles again, on our own, instead of with thousands of others on the same mission.
With your help, the money I raise will change the lives of millions of people who struggle with the burden of type 1 diabetes (T1D) every day.
Did you know T1D:
- Is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin – the hormone that controls blood sugar levels
- Strikes children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle
- Requires constant carb counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin
- Is a constant balancing act that can result in stress and sleepless nights
There is no way to prevent T1D and there is no cure – yet. But JDRF is working hard to change that and for the first time in our history there is a clear path to cures for T1D. Every dollar you donate today funds research for breakthroughs to help everyone with T1D live healthier and longer, until this disease no longer exists.
We can’t get to the finish line without you.
