Time has come again! Walk to Cure Diabetes brings people together in a fun, healthy activity for a worthy cause. As most of you know, Dash was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 9th grade. Type I Diabetes is genetic and Dash is insulin dependent, unlike Type II that can be controlled with diet and is usually obesity related.
In honor of my husband (your brother, son, son-in-law, and friend), we will be participatin for our second year in Houston’s Walk to Cure Diabetes. I would love to have you walk with Dash and I. The walk will be at Reliant Park on Saturday October 20, with registration starting at 7am and the walk starting around 8am. It will be approximately 3 miles. If you would like to join us, just follow this link to register: http://walk.jdrf.org/register.cfm?id=86871053 – TEAM CONNELL! (We have 3 miles to think of a better name for next year!)
We have also set up a fundraising page if you are not able to walk - skip your Starbucks or fast food for a week - and donate in honor of Dash to JDRF through this page - http://walk.jdrf.org/support.cfm?id=86871053. (TEAM CONNELL walkers can set up their own fundraising page) Each dollar takes us one step closer to finding a cure for diabetes. Doctors and researchers are predicting we will actually see a CURE for diabetes well within Dash's lifetime.
Be proud on Walk Day and beyond, experience the pride and satisfaction that comes from knowing you were an important part of a nationwide effort that raised millions of dollars to help find a cure for diabetes.
Thanks in advance for your support!
Dash and Shae
