Thank You JDRF

I don’t walk with JDRF each year because I am making money for myself. I walk to help other type 1 diabetics find their way in life, and help them to understand it is important not to be ashamed of who you are, or what you have been dealt with in life.

In October of 2012, my team Calla’s Crusaders walked with the Westchester JDRF Chapter. We did an amazing job and raised an enormous amount of money for how small the team actually was. I have to say that walk was probably one of the best ones yet, in the last 12 years we have been walking.

I would like to thank everyone for making it so great… and an especially big thank you to the staff at JDRF themselves! Normally, I would opt out of the prize catalog, mostly because they tend to be small, almost useless prizes. I would rather JDRF not spend the money, and have it go back to JDRF and further help them in finding a cure.

This year, I have changed my mind. The prize catalog had some great items! One being a home theater system — that me and my boyfriend have been debating on buying anyway. I’ve received a lot of confirmation emails, and the package finally arrived today! Thank you JDRF for allowing me to participate Because I raised money for JDRFin the walk last year, and acknowledging all the effort me and my team have put into making the walk a success.

Hey who knows, maybe our team can double the efforts for 2013.
