Let's create a world without T1D!

My name is Griffin Craig. I am 18 years old, and a senior at Lapel High School. My passion is playing basketball.  On January 3, 2018, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I was in 8th grade.  It was during my school basketball season.  We were 1 month and a day away from my county tournament.  When the doctor told me what my diagnosis was, the only question I had was if I could still play basketball.  I was diagnosed on a Wednesday, and by Saturday I was back on the court.  On February 4, my eighth grade basketball team and I won the Madison County Tournament.  I have never let diabetes get in the way of what I love to do.  I don’t let diabetes define me, I define diabetes. Many people don’t realize the monthly costs associated with type 1 diabetes.  It can cost many people well over $1,000 a month for the medicines and supplies they need just to survive.  This month I am going to shoot 1000 free throws to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure.  

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.

Thank you!
