JDRF, Diabetes, and Me.

Last weekend I photographed the JDRF One Walk in Stroudsburg, Pa. It was a volunteer position. I can tell you though, I left there that day far richer than I was before hand. The people at these events, from the event chairman to the volunteers are a family. A community...... MY community.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding promising T1D ( type 1 diabetes ) research. Their mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. The JDRF One Walk is their flagship fundraising event and the largest type 1 diabetes (T1D) event in the world. The funds and awareness raised by their dedicated walkers, volunteers and sponsors help them create a world without T1D."

Last summer on July 1st, my oldest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. It was devastating. JDRFwas there for him, for me, and I'm so glad I was able to be there for them for the day. Even if just a little bit.
