JDRF Walk for a Cure
Dayton, Ohio on October 3rd, 2009
I signed up for the JDRF Walk for a Cure today.
Our 3 year old son Connor was diagnosed in December 2008 with Type 1 Diabetes. My wife and I are taking on this disease as a personal (and public) crusade. Connor happens to be one of the youngest children in the Miami Valley with Juvenile Diabetes and therefore is looking at a long lifetime of daily finger pricks and insulin injections along with all the nasty long term repercussions of this disease. Unlike Type 2 Diabetes which can affect anyone, Type 1 actually targets only children.
If you can find it in your heart or in your wallet/purse to donate to the Juvenile Diabetes cause, please visit my walk page and donate a few dollars or if you are local you can sign up to walk with our team “Connor’s Troopers”.
A very special part of being on Connor’s team includes participation from the Star Wars 501st Legion – Ohio Garrison who will be walking for Connor this year. The 501st Legion is an international group of Star Wars costumers who donate their time and funds to great causes for children. You may have seen them in local parades or on TV. Our son is very honored to have them a part of our supporting family.
Virginia and I thank you for considering a donation in support of Connor’s fight against Type 1 Diabetes.
