This year the Texas Note Company will participate in our first ever JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, which will be held on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at The Domain in Austin, Texas. We are embracing this walk as an opportunity to show our support for company’s founder oldest daughter, Katharine. Katharine was diagnosed in March of this year with Type 1 Diabetes. She has faced this chronic medical condition with all of her might and has been tenacious in her efforts to not let it affect her daily life as an 11-year old middle school girl. We are very proud of her dedication to keep herself healthy and strong each day while managing her blood sugar. That is no easy task for anyone, let alone a non-stop eater of more food than you think her stomach can hold on any given day!
As we take part in this year’s JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes, we are hoping to encourage your support for our fundraising efforts with a donation online. ANY amount, great or small, helps JDRF move closer to its goal to improve the lives of every person affected by Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Donating online is quick, easy and secure! However, if you prefer, you can mail your contribution to the address listed below. Make your gift payable to JDRF, and please put Katharine’s name in the memo field.
Attached is a link to the Texas Note Company page for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes (or you can visit walk.jdrf.org). We are part of TEAM KATHARINE. As part of her fundraising efforts, Katharine has made a video on YouTube encouraging your help with a donation to the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. (Click on the #3 below her photo on her personal page to view her video.)
If you would like to join us in Austin on October 27 at The Domain to walk with Team Katharine, that would be a thrill for us all! (Registration begins at 9AM, fun/games/music from 9AM-11:30AM, and the Walk begins at 11:30AM for two miles around The Domain.) We may have t-shirts made for Team Katharine, so for those who choose to walk with us, stay tuned for more details on a team t-shirt.
For our friends with students needing IB community service hours, participating with Team Katharine on the walk day will earn you two hours of service time!
Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement these last 6 months – we are getting by one day at a time and every little bit of thoughts and love help!
