Join Team Elise!

The following is an excerpt from an email Fred sent out: As some of you may know, our little baby girl Elise was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (also known as juvenile diabetes) just over a week ago. As you can imagine, it's been a rough few days for Joanne and I...
Inspired by my good friend Gene Moore, I've decided to take part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk to Cure Diabetes. Gene and I will walk in Plano, TX and will be joined by another half million walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $100 million.Type 1 diabetes is a devastating disease that affects millions of people—a large and growing percentage of them children. There is some good news, though. For the first time, scientists are predicting that we CAN expect to see a cure well within our lifetime!

If you would like to help financially, please donate here.
If you would like to join Gene and I on the walk on Saturday, September 27 at 9 AM, sign-up
We are so excited to be able to join the fight against diabetes. If you have the means, please join us either by donating, or walking with Team Elise!
