Last year was my first year to participate (after having T1D for so many years it’s embarrassing I didn’t partake sooner) and I had a lot of fun. The 5k walk was actually what got me motivated to start my Couch to 5k program last Fall. I waited until the last minute to sign up last year and I didn’t fundraise at all so I’m hoping this year to do better. I’ve already got a small team together (my hubby, sis and I) and I’m hoping some other family members might join in. I’ve set my fundraising goal to $500 at I’m already at $300 (thanks Dad!) so I’m almost there! Here is my team page.
I’m looking forward to the walk to bond with some fellow T1Ds. If any of my friends in the Diabetes Online Community are going to be doing the walk, let me know…I would love to meet up!
