JDRF- Walk for a Cure 2008

Photobucket

Yesterday was the second year we participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations walk for a cure for Type 1 diabetes as a family team called Kara's Krew. My sister, now 22, was diagnosed at 10 with this challenging disease. This came on the heels of loosing our father at such young ages. She has fought tirelessly for the last 12 years to keep this condition in check, but we are hoping her fight will soon have a victory. We all firmly believe a cure is in the works, and something that can be achieved in our lifetime, which is why we gather together as a family to raise money and walk for a cure.

Our team, composed of my sister, her husband, myself, Hubby, our kids, my mom, my sisters mother-in-law and her significant other. Together, in this tight economy, and with the help of many loving people, we were able to raise $1810.08! DOUBLE what we raised in 2006 when we did the walk! I couldn't be more thankful to everyone who was part of our day! Please enjoy the following pictures from our day!
