Miles of Hope!!!
The last few years, we've done a walk to raise money for diabetes research. Leah looks forward to it, and it feels good to help make a difference.
This year we decided to switch it up a bit. We're still doing a walk, but we're doing our OWN walk! There are about a dozen families in the small community I live in that have children with Type 1, and on October 22, 2011 we are coming together for our own event and donating the proceeds to The Faustman Lab.
The cool part is, this walk is not just a local event....it's also a VIRTUAL WALK, meaning ANYONE can participate by donating and dedicating their walk or run for the day to the cause. We want to reach as many people as possible while raising awareness for our kids and helping to cure this disease.
Visit the Miles of Hope registration page to register, donate, and participate. We know it will make a difference!!
