TEAMING UP TOGETHER TO fight T1D
In the beautiful town of Ridgefield, Connecticut, our group of 8 families has come to know each other because of a common bond; each has a child with type 1 diabetes. This year, our families are walking together to support our little Ridgefield Warriors. Joining in a common family fight, we are raising money to help end type 1 diabetes (T1D).
When you have T1D, your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity. Even with a strict regimen, people with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life threatening.
With T1D there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope. And that’s why our team is supporting the JDRF One Walk this year.
Scientific advances are being turned into therapies that are changing the course of T1D. And together, we have the power to drive these therapies to market as quickly as we can.
We hope you will join our team or donate to our fundraising goal! Your support will fund life-changing breakthroughs and have a lasting impact on the millions of individuals living with this disease.
Thank you for your support.
