Support Jack’s Jiants at JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes with Outdoor Tech®
Los Angeles, CA (November 4, 2014) – Even though Jack has had Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) for 3 years, he looks like a normal 5-year-old boy on the outside. He is adorable, silly, spastic and into everything. But what’s really going on in his life is anything but normal. His reality includes pokes, prods, sight infections, hospital stays, missed play dates, tears and emotional turmoil that no child should ever have to endure. It has been a life changer for the entire family, including Jack’s twin sister who does not have T1D.
That’s where JDRF comes in as the leading global organization funding T1D research. With JDRF Walks to Cure Diabetes taking place across the nation, coming up on November 9, 2014 is the JDRF Walk at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA in which Jack’s team “Jack’s Jiants” will be walking for the 4th year in a row. They are the largest walk team for this location, as well as the highest fundraising team. Jack’s mother Danielle LaBriola says, “Jack has told me on numerous occasions that one of the ONLY good things about having diabetes is the walk. He feels the support and actually feels like a hero for a day.”
In support of Jack’s Jiants, Outdoor Tech® has created a special t-shirt for adults that is available for purchase here for $24.00. 100% of all profits from this shirt will be donated to Jack’s JDRF Fund. In addition, Outdoor Tech® partner Rob Caulfield was personally moved by Jack’s story and has committed to match the first $5000 in contributions to support such a great cause. If you prefer to simply donate to Jack’s team and/or join the walk in Anaheim with him, please click here. By doing any of these things, you are directly helping Jack and the millions of other kids who are struggling every day to live their lives with this disease. These donations are so important because without funding there simply will be no cure.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent and eventually cure T1D.
