Hi my name is Jordan Collette ~ I am 12 years old and I have had Type 1 Diabetes for 6 years. I am trying to raise awareness and money towards research for a CURE; that is why I have entered a fundraising team in “Walk for a Cure”. This event is being run by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), of which I am a Youth Ambassador.
The “Walk for a Cure” will be on Sunday the 17th October 2010 at Wigley Reserve Glenelg. The walk commences at 10.30am, but fun activities start at 9.30am and go through till 2.00pm. Further information can be gained from the JDRF website: http://walk.jdrf.org.au/
I have registered my fundraising team called “TEAM JORDAN” and I would like to encourage as many people as possible to participate in the walk. People can donate directly to my team by going to the JDRF website and click on the “donate” button, type the name Jordan Collette and then follow the prompts. Or direct access to my page can be gained from the following website: http://walk.jdrf.org.au/SA/JordanCollette/
Thank you for helping; every step you take in supporting me is one step closer to my dream of a cure. Jordan Collette
