This year, (our 4th year) 16 people came out on walk day to support Arden! The weather was perfect and we raised a tidy sum of money to support type I research.
Here’s the breakdown of what we’ve accomplished together over the last four walks.
-Hundreds of people have walked with Arden and acted as advocates on her behalf.
-Arden’s website is viewed in Canada, all over the USA, England, Australia, Mexico, Japan and South America.
-With your help we have raised more then $32,000 for the JDRF.
-Most importantly this walk has educated countess people about what a child’s day is like when they have type I diabetes. Thank you for all of your kindness and support!
Pictures from the walk are here.
Donations are still being accepted at all of our walker’s JDRF pages or by mail. Got to this link http://walk.jdrf.org/ and search for team ‘Walk for Arden’ under the red sneaker icon to see our walkers.
Lastly, many people collect donations and everyone’s effort carries equal weight in my mind but I’d be remiss if I didn’t give special thanks to Dan Stewart. Dan met Arden three years ago at a children’s birthday party and has since raised thousands of dollars for her walk, this year his total on walk day was well over $3,000. He volunteered at our Poker Tournament and runs his own fundraisers. If this walk had an MVP trophy, Dan would get it every year. I’m humbled by his kindness and proud to call him a friend.
