Guys, thanks to the wonderful readers of this site and a few VERY generous people, SCU is extremely close to my goal of 500 dollars donated for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s walk for a cure. If you havent donated but want to, there is still time. All you have to do is click on the link below and you will have the opportunity to contribute by credit card or even possibly paypal.
First off, I want to thank Russ and the people who have already contributed to the Juvenile Diabetes Walk on my team’s behalf. So far we have raised $50 dollars for diabetes research, and we are well on our way to our goal of $500. I am hoping to raise enough to cover a few people on my team’s donation, but it is a victory even if we only raise 100. We will be walking in november, so ill periodically post to give you guys updates.
This November, ill be participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Walk to Cure Diabetes at Dodger Stadium. Last year, with the help of the awesome and generous readers of SCU, I was able to raise over $250 dollars for the cause. This year, I am hoping that it will be possible for us to double that contribution, as the site has grown considerably since the last time I walked.
I have had diabetes since 1993, and have worked with the JDRF to raise as much money as possible with my fundraising and volunteering. I have had a lot of success, mainly because there are so many people out there who have diabetes or are touched by the disease. Sadly, there are millions of people out there who have struggled with maintaining a healthy life with Diabetes, and this is your chance to give to a great cause with the mission of helping them.
Below, there is a link to my walker page at the JDRF website where you can donate money via credit card directly to the people at the walk. Before you ask, please be advised that you are not sending any money directly to me, it all goes straight to the event. Every single dollar counts, and I encourage you to take whatever you can and donate. I know its a tough time for everyone, though hopefully you can take the cost you would normally spend on a single pack and put it toward the walk. That is all it takes. Your help is greatly appreciated and I personally thank you for spending your hard earned money.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
