Walk Day is Here!

Dear Family Teams,

Walk Day has arrived!  We are expecting another beautiful walk day tomorrow.  I don’t know what it is, but we somehow seem to have won the beautiful weather lottery.  Please remember that the walk is an hour earlier this year.  So registration is at 8, and the walk begins at 9.   The walk is 2.5 miles, so plan accordingly.  There will be water booths on the route, and juice will be available, but it is still a good idea to bring something along to treat a low blood sugar, if necessary.

Plan to turn in any funds that you have collected tomorrow at the registration booth.  However, remember that the JDRF will gladly accept checks after the walk, and your team will still be given credit for any funds raised, well after walk day.  So don’t give up on your fund-raising efforts!

Also, I want to welcome aboard the following recently registered family teams:

  • Ben’s Bunch
  • Tabitha Lewis
  • Zoie’s Team

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!  Together, we will find a cure!!
