Hello Friends and Family,
The JDRF Walk to Cure Type 1 Diabetes is quickly approaching and although we did not put a walk team together last year we have decided we would like to walk this year for our sweet son, Nate. We don’t have much time because the walk is September 29th ---- nothing like waiting until the last minute to decide --- right??
We have a great sponsor this year . . . .
Quick Sticks has generously offered to provide walk shirts and other goodies for walk day. So, if you would like to walk with us this year --- I need to know ASAP so they can order our shirts. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you’d like to walk and your t-shirt size. Families are welcome!! The walk is a very family friendly event and we always have a lot of fun before and after the walk.
Please consider walking with us this year to show your support for our Super Nate.
On September 17th of this year Nate will have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for 3 years. He was diagnosed at the young age of 14-months. Although, we do not let type 1 diabetes define Nate in any way his diabetes is always there. He never gets to take a break or have a vacation from diabetes. I truly believe that in the 3 years our family has been living with diabetes we have adjusted and made our life with diabetes look easy and if you asked Nate today he would not complain. Please know that living with type 1 is not easy. Diabetes hurts my little man in so many ways. We need your support on walk day and every day ---- please, please consider walking with Nate to show your support.
If you are able to make a donation, we would be beyond appreciative. Every dollar donated to JDRF brings us one step closer to finding a cure.

Once you respond about the walk I will send out more details about walk day.
Many, many thanks,
Jim, Laura, Emma, Sophie and Super Nate
Keep Calm and Walk On!!
