Arden’s Uncle Brian and his girlfriend Liz participated in a JDRF walk to cure diabetes today. Brian and Liz wanted to help Arden raise money for a cure but they live half way across the country. So they did some investigating and found a JDRF walk near them.
Brian went person to person at his place of employment and found 46 wonderful people to donate in Arden’s name.
Even though Brian and Liz collected all of their donations ($410) prior to the walk... they walked anyway. They told me that, “it was amazing how something as simple as a stroll through the park made them feel so good”. Wanting desperately to help a loved one in need and not having the power to, can leave you feeling very hopeless. Just being part of the walk is empowering, even if only in spirit. It’s a feeling that is hard to explain and even more difficult to imagine. You should give it a try...
If you sign up today you can still generate donations. I promise you that the feeling you’ll get from this kind of philanthropy is elating. It renews your hope in humanity and can rekindle your youthful spirit and recharge the “I can change the world” feeling that can diminish as we age.
Just follow the link at the top of the page to sign up and walk with us. As I’ve said before if you’re unable to attend the walk you can still sign up and gather donations. If you don’t live in our area you can just go to the JDRF’s website and find a walk near you, the way Brian and Liz did.
Thank you for supporting ardens day and hopefully we’ll see you on the 28th!
