JDRF Walk to cure diabetes

A friend of mine has recently began working on fundraising for a cause that’s very near to him. Juvenile Type 1 Diabetes. Its truly a life changing diagnosis for a family. Everything about a family’s day to day life can be upended not only in testing, diet and treatment but also the costs of life saving materials and specialists. Here’s what he’s put out to us and I’d like to share it with you. If you would like more information we’d be happy to answer what we can however the donation link at the bottom will also lead you to some good resources. If you can donate to this cause please do, it’d mean the world to all of us. His 5k walk is on April 26th at Dixon Park in
Fredericksburg, VA.

I have recently gotten to know a family with a child with type 1 diabetes. The ways this diseases has changed this family’s life is unbelievable and a daily struggle for them. I feel that it’s the right thing to do to help them in whatever way I can. So I am committed to raise awareness and funds to help in the research and hopefully one day a cure for this disease.
So this year, I’ll be taking part in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight type 1 diabetes (T1D), a serious autoimmune disease that affects millions of people.

Type 1 diabetes has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Currently, there is no cure. People with T1D must manage the disease by injecting or pumping insulin several times a day, every day. But insulin is not a cure, and it does not prevent the possibility of serious complications like kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.

We can reach a world without T1D faster with your help! Will you please support my commitment by making a donation today? Any amount, great or small, brings JDRF closer to its goal of moving scientific advances from the laboratory to clinical trials and into the hands of people with T1D.

Please consider donating today!
