Hiking For A Cure for Diabetes

$685 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 6 people in 5 months
My son Tyler has been living with Type 1 diabetes since he was 7 years old, along with hundreds of thousands of other children and adults. As with any parent I want the quality of my son's life to be the best possible while managing his diabetes. The only way to do that is to bring awareness to what this disease is, what it does, what it prevents people who live with it from doing. 

I will be hiking 2650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail aka The PCT, to educate and bring awareness to those who are not aware of what type 1 diabetes is and how it is  compared to type 2.

Not only will this bring awareness to a disease that has debilitated many and caused so many unnecessary deaths but it will also give a child or adult living with this deadly disease the opportunity to tell their story.

The funds raised in this gofundme account will help us on this journey during our hike with essentials like resupplies.

All funds raised over what is needed to complete this hike will be donated to JDRF on behalf of our followers. 
Please help us complete this hike and help us to educate and inform as many people possible. With your help we are one step closer to helping find a cure, or helping someone who is struggeling with diabetes.

We thank you for your support, and hope you follow along on this amazing adventure....

24 days and counting! All gear is secured and ready. Money raised thru the gofund me account will be used specifically for resupplying on the trail, and emergency gear replacement. Any money not used for that specific reason will be donated to JDRF on behalf of the donor. I appreciate everyone's support as I begin to Hike for diabetic research and help to create a word free of this disease.

With 55 days to go before kick off, we are working hard to raise donations. While living on the trail for 5-6 months the cost of completing this event is happening because of people like you.
All expenses for gear and equipment have been paid for out of pocket or by donations from our corporate sponsors, but the expenses do not stop there.

Please help us spread the word and help reach our goal which will help us reach our quest to Canada. Tell your friends, family, co workers, your help and generous donations are very much appreciated AND needed . Any amounts raised through this gofundme account over and beyond our goal will be donated directly to JDRF.
