October means The JDRF Walk!

It’s been TWO YEARS since Maddie and I participated in the JDRF Walk for the Cure.  Last fall was just too crazy and it pained me to have to bow out of it.  I vowed not to let busyness push it out of our calendar this year!! So we are signed up to walk, and would invite ANY of you who would like to walk with us, to please do so!!

Wake Forest University BB&T Field

Winston-Salem, NC

Registration starts 9 am

Walk begins 10 am

I’ll be posting once a week about this wonderful organization called the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  This group has been around since the 70’s.  Due to their efforts in research and fund-raising, they have literally made it possible for a child with Type 1 Diabetes to LIVE.

When Maddie goes to her appointments at the Joslyn Diabetes Center, she is now told that a cure is around the corner…possibly in the next 5 to 10 years!!  The need for funding is great as they close in on finding a cure and discovering other technological advances that make living with T1D so much more manageable.

If you would like to contribute to this fine organization to help find a cure, PLEASE CLICK HERE! The set up for donating a few dollars is SO simple through the JDRF site.  Maddie’s Mission is the name of our team.  Your contribution, no matter how small, goes to benefitting Maddie and so many of her friends she has met who are also living with Type 1 Diabetes.

We would be truly grateful for your donation!

AND if you’re in the area, please walk with us!!
