“Why We Walk –
We walk for you. We walk to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and raise funds for vital research that will find a cure for this life-altering disease. Awareness so that fewer children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes present diabetic ketoacidosis and no one suffers long-standing complications from such a state. A cure that would be available to all, no matter their ability to pay. A future where you don’t have to constantly worry about your child’s blood sugars and their long term health outcomes. A future where we happily have to find new jobs.
Until that time, we will continue to advocate for you and cheer you on along the way. We are privileged to walk with you on your diabetes journey from diagnosis to transition to adult care – your fight against type 1 diabetes 24/7 inspires and motivates us. On August 19th we will walk beside you to find a cure for type 1 diabetes! Thank you for letting us be part of your diabetes journey.”
