Family Teams Update

Happy Friday Family Teams!

I want to welcome aboard the following new family teams:

  • Crazy Chicken
  • Team Ashley
  • Team Devonte
  • Team Harris
  • Peyton Joseph
  • Zac Attack

Thank you so much for joining our ranks!  We have had an outstanding showing of family teams this year, and are gearing up for a beautiful, super-successful Walk to Cure 2013!

That having been said, we still have a number of teams from last year who have not registered, so, if you know anyone who usually participates, please reach out to them and encourage them to get registered.  If any of you is having trouble with the registration process, the staff at the JDRF office stands ready to assist you.  Please, just call or email.  Or, feel free to contact me and I will try to help.

If you have not yet sent out your family team letter, please do so as soon as possible.  We are almost midway through September, and Walk Day is closing in on us.  The sooner you get your letter out, the more opportunity that you will have to raise funds for this very important cause we are supporting.

If you have sent your letter out, start getting creative about other ways to raise funds.  The website offers valuable tips about how to accomplish this.

Thank you so much for your efforts!  It means the world to me to have those of us who share this experience of Type 1 Diabetes rise together to fight back, to apply ourselves for our loved ones, and to take meaningful action to bring about the cure that will free us from the ever-present burden of T1D!
