Help me reach my goal to Stop Diabetes
SO MANY LIVES ARE TOUCHED BY DIABETES. CHANCES ARE, YOUR LIFE IS TOO.
As you are all aware, I participate in our Step Out event every year and every year I let people know my reasons on the importance of supporting the American Diabetes Association. This event is so much more than a fundraising event to me. It is also the avenue to share our mission, provide knowledge that people might not be aware of and helps me remember and honor family members who are affected by this disease. Yes, I am committed to participate and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because I personally know people affected by diabetes and I want to do something about it. What about you? Won't you help me start a chain reaction?
To help you understand one of my reasons for participating, I wanted to share a personal story. I walk and support the efforts of the Association because my grandfather passed away from complications of diabetes. I never got to know my grandfather because he passed away right before I was born. I never got to know him but I am told he was super excited to have his first grandchild. I walk for his memory but also for a cure so other grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers and families who currently have diabetes have the chances that my grandfather did not. By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
Chances are, you also know someone who has been affected by diabetes and you already know how important it is to stop this disease. By making a donation on my behalf or by joining my team, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
With your help, we will fight for the future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support Together we can Stop Diabetes!
