Welcome to the second installment of the 2017 JDRF One Walk Team Spotlights – a series dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the most important aspect of the JDRF One Walk – YOU! This week, read on to learn more about Team Tomtom from Schaumburg.
Team Name – Team Tomtom
How long have you had your team? – This is our 3rd year walking
Walk Site – Busse Woods
Who are you walking for?
Our son Tommy.
How did you pick your team’s name?
Tommy’s nickname is Tomtom.
Do you have any Walk Day traditions?
What is your favorite memory from your first walk?
Just seeing all the families there for one purpose! There’s so much publicity for type 2 diabetes that it can be discouraging and lonely. The JDRF One Walk brings light to those affected by T1D and the loneliness disappears for one day when we are all together!
Be sure to check back in soon for our next Team Spotlight. Have you registered your One Walk team yet? Visit walk.jdrf.org to register today and we will see you at Merrillville on Sept. 17th or at our many Illinois sites on Oct. 1st!
