JDRF Team Spotlight – Brendan’s Team Type 1

Welcome to the second week 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, we’re featuring Brendan’s Team Type 1!

Team Name – Brendan’s Team Type 1

How long have you had your team? – 5 Years!

Who are you walking for? Brendan

How did you pick your team’s name?  Brendan and his brother, Kaine, came up with the team name.

Do you have any Walk Day traditions?  We design new team t-shirts each year and sell them as a fundraiser! Our team meets under our red tent in the same spot each year with our team shirts and support Brendan and JDRF!

What is your favorite memory from your first walk?  Our first Walk. Seeing all the other families that are impacted by T1D is overwhelming and comforting at the same time. Knowing you are not alone brought me a sense of peace.

Be sure to come back next week for our next Team Spotlight! Want your team to be in the spotlight? Fill out our survey and submit a photo to midtennessee@jdrf.org to be next!

Don’t have a Walk Team yet? Be sure to register for our Walk on September 30!
