2008 JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes

Scott Benner

The 2008 JDRF Walk website is up and running.  But registering as a “walker” doesn’t mean you have to walk anywhere (though we’d love for you to attend).  

Unlike charity walks you may remember from the past, donations aren’t multiplied by the miles you walk or any other such formula.  You can think of yourself as an “advocate” rather then a “walker”.  Unless you walk then you’re definitely a walker... but no less an advocate.

In October 2007 we 'Walked for Arden' and when the dust settled we raised over $10,000.00 for the JDRF to fight Type I diabetes with!  Seventeen of us gathered donations from over 180 individuals.  Arden’s Day readers that lived too far away to come to the PA walk attended walks in their home state and then submitted their donation through Arden’s JDRF site.

I know that the 2008 Walk is many months away and I’m not asking for donation just yet.  I'm hoping to get our walkers signed up early as part of an effort to reach a new goal in 2008.  That goal is to expand our walker base exponentially.  

If everyone that receives my email signed up and then raised just $200 we would add over $20,000 to last year's total, which of course would just be amazing!

Thank you for your time and for considering Walking for Arden... signing up is just a click away.
