Juvenile Diabetes Walk to Cure 2010 - WN School

Everyone Please mark your calandar's and JOIN us for our First Juvenile Diabetes Walk at Wellington-Napoleon School. April 17th, 2010 at the WN Park from 9 am to Noon.

Walk packets are located at the post offices in Wellington and Napoleon, the Elementary and High School offices, Catfish Charlie's and Nanna Marie's, and Sni Mini Mart all in Wellington.

Important facts: Diabetes is one of this nation’s most prevalent, debilitating, deadly and costly diseases and it continues to grow at an alarming rate. In fact, if things don’t change, one in three children - and one in two minority children - born today will face a future with diabetes.

Over the next four years, another 6 million people will be diagnosed with the disease.

Our school walk is K-12 and we are sponsored by FCCLA-for High School and Mrs. McKown-for Elementary. THANK YOU BOTH so very much!! Information will come home with your children on March 29, 2010.

The purpose of this walk is to raise money for the research to "CURE" diabetes. 85% of all funds raised will go to research. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the only foundation that gives back 85% of the funds raised to research for the cure!

Together we can make a difference in the life of a Diabetic T1 or T2.

This walk is very important to me, as you know my son Cole (age 14) was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes almost 2 years ago, and his life will never be the same. Cole now depends on insulin that is being injected into his body by a pump every hour to live! With out insulin Cole would die.

Also our school has not just Cole but 4 other children with J.D. and they also have pumps that inject insulin into their bodies to stay alive.

Our community has 1 more child not in school yet who has diabetes. That makes 6 young children in our community alone who need our help.

As you think about this walk please remember these young children, your friends & loved ones and how YOU can make a difference in their life by raising the funds needed for research to find the "CURE" for Diabetes.

Please read our blog and learn about diabetes and the harsh future these children can face. Knowledge is power and TOGETHER we can make a difference!!

I know- I want to say, "I did that, I helped CURE diabetes!"
You can too, please join us in our Walk to Cure Diabetes.

Thank you, God Bless and Health and Happiness to you and your families.
