In January, I will be taking on the Dopey Challenge in January (5k, 10k, Half Marathon and Full Marathon over 4 consecutive days Thursday-Sunday). Along with this physical challenge, I have joined Team JDRF to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
My race entry, lodging, etc has already been paid for. So every $ you help me raise will go towards Team JRDF.
The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.
While fortunate enough that my family has not been affected, I see daily inspirations from my friends who have been affected by T1D. My friend Barry’s son was diagonized with Type 1 diabetes 12 years ago. Barry is also my training partner in the Dopey Challenge (and other similar events).
And to help me fundraise, I am having a BAKE SALE! Of Donuts!!
For every person who makes a donation to my JDRF fundraising between now and September 6th, I will bake and deliver donuts to you.
Unfortunately, I will have to limit the donut delivery to the Atlanta area, unless you don’t mind receiving squished donuts via USPS.
How can you donate?
