Our One Walk Team received a pretty exciting and motivating email from JDRF this week. Cumulatively, we have raised over $26,100, and if we can raise $3,900 (and hit $30,000!!) more we will be recognized on the day of the Walk, as well as placed onto the JDRF Wall of Fame! The thing about this that makes me the happiest is that this is not a solo effort. This is not just a team effort. In this case, it took the effort of an ARMY to raise this money! (That’s right, Dumbledore’s Army for Davis!) Not a day goes by that we are not humbled by the support of so many people, near and far. And honestly, a big part of reaching our goals has been the benefit of the corporate match!
As we sit here, about 50 days from the JDRF One Walk in Harrisburg, we remain hopeful. The thing is, fundraising is way for us to connect with you: our family and friends. It is a way for us to advocate for Davis and others like him. They have so many technological advances to help them live normal lives, but at the end of the day, they still have Type One Diabetes. So yes, we remain hopeful, hopeful that all this fundraising will lead to the one discovery that will change Davis’s life forever: a cure. With your help, we get closer every day. So thank you.
