POSTPONED!!!! Our team is hosting a fun run/walk for the Northridge and Tuscaloosa Community to help create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) for the millions of children and adults living with this disease. All you have to do to register is join our team and make a $10 donation! Before and during the event, we will be monitoring our fundraising page to see who will be our top donor!
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults—and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. 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.
By donating or joining our team today, you’ll help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to make living with T1D safer and healthier, until there is a cure.
We can’t do it without you!
