Welcome to my fundraising page for the Michigan Step out!
I walk because I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes six years ago. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder that makes me insulin dependant. I cannot live without insulin.
I have been advocating for diabetes awareness pretty much ever since I was diagnosed. I am honored to be a youth ambassador for the Michigan chapter of the American Diabetes Association. The best part of my advocacy was getting to meet the CEO herself, Tracey Brown! Her positivity is what makes me want to keep advocating and spreading that awareness.
So many people live with diabetes every day and many more are pre-diabetic. I walk for the 34 million people that are living with diabetes like myself. Your support goes to help raise the awareness and also goes towards education, research, camp, and hopefully one day a cure!!
Will you join me in the fight? You can join my team and walk, ride your bike, dance, exercise, or whatever you do that is active. The great thing about this walk is that it is VIRTUAL! The date is August 29, 2021. Come join my team or donate. I appreciate every dollar donated.
Thank you so much for your support!!
