THE STORY:

I learned about diabetes fully when a band member of my childhood favorite music group, The Jonas Brothers, Nick Jonas spoke about the disease. As a fan, I wanted to help, to be his lifeline so that he and all who are diagnosed with juvenile diabetes could be cured so they wouldn't have to suffer from this terrible disease alone. For the first time three years ago, I registered and walked in my local chapter's JDRF Walk for a Cure in honor of Nick and everyone else. I felt inspired to do more, and so two years ago, for my first Crowdrise project, I've decided to raise as much money as I can for the walk and the foundation. If I receive donations past the deadline for the walk, I will donate the rest to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation online, I hope you will join me in the fight for a cure! This charity means a lot to me and when I fully understood the magnitude of how horrible this disease is, I couldn't sit back and NOT do something. I volunteered at the walk in my city for the past two years and saw firsthand a glimpse as to how hard it is to live with juvenile diabetes when a child's mother asked about the nutritional values in a baked good we were handing out. I take for granted picking up any food and eating it. This charity needs more support to continue research and that's why I created my project on the site. It's not as huge as of an event in my city as it should be, but I'm going to try and make it larger. When we all came together to raise money and walk united, it didn't matter how many people attended. It was an experience that I hope to share with others. I didn't start this project to be applauded or thanked, I did it because if I had diabetes, it's what I'd want for someone to do for me. As we all know, research can't function without funds, that's where we come in! Tell all your friends and family about my project and please donate if you can! :) -Much Love, Megan Bray
