Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation visited Hannah's school last week and taught the children about type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as nutritional eating habits and exercise.  Hannah was challenged to help by fundraising with the Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Hannah now has the opportunity to participate in the fun by selling paper sneakers to friends, family, and YOU for a donation of $1 or more.  not only will Hannah be helping to find a cure for diabetes, but JDRF will give Hannah's school an appreciation gift equal to 10% of the money raised.  Hannah can win prizes as she fundraises to reach different prize levels and Hannah's school can receive a banner celebrating their success.
If you are interested in donated, you can send checks payable to JDRF to our address or give via my Pay Pal Account (rosemc99@gmail.com [www.paypal.com]) with JDRF in the notes/comments section so I know what it is for. 
On collection day, Hannah will participate in the Walk to Cure Diabetes at her school.  You can bet that I'll be there with her as she walks.
Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of American, including my nephew, Tyler, and our family friend, William.  Each day more than 40 children are stricken with type 1 diabetes for which there is no cure.  Thank you for your support of Hannah's fundraising effort to benefit both the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as well as Hannah's school.  For more information, please contact your local JDRF Chapter at 1-888-533-WALK, for visit www.jdrf.org/kidswalk

Thanks for doing this! I sent a donation tonight. Before bed Tyler said, "Walk fast to get me a cure!" ;)

Love you!
