Join me in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

I’m so excited to be training for my first full marathon!  To make it even more meaningful I decided to run for the charity, JDRF.  I chose this charity because of a student in my school, Oliver, who has courageously dealt with juvenile diabetes since before he was in my first grade classroom and for his family who has helped and advocated for him tirelessly.  They are truly a family I admire.  He and his family have been advocating and raising money for this charity for years.  It only seemed fitting that I help out too.

Description

Welcome to my personal Team JDRF to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!

I have joined Team JDRF to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.

Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.

Please support me and donate to my fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?

Thank you for your support!
