2010 Walk to Cure Diabetes

Saturday, April 10 was a beautiful day for a Walk to Cure Diabetes! It was a special treat for us as this walk was held in our small town. About 40 people joined our team, Ross's Gator Crusaders. Again, we were humbled by the support we received from family and friends. Our small diabetes support group worked with the organizers of the event, a young lady named Brianna (diagnosed at age 7) and her mother, Becky. They originally hoped to have 100 walkers take part and to raise $1,500. An estimated 500 walkers were in attendance and $15,000 was raised for JDRF! As a family that is affected by type 1 diabetes, we can't even begin to say how important this is! This money will be used to make life easier and more comfortable for Ross and will put a cure within our reach!
