Hi everyone my name is Holly and I am 16 years old and I have had diabetes since I was 10 months old. Myself and two other teens with T1D (type one diabetes) and JDRF is creating a group called “Teens with T1D”. We are trying to find more teens with T1D who would be interested in joining. We would meet together a couple times a year and just talk and plan fundraisers and events to raise money for JDRF so they can turn Type One into Type None. This coming Monday, July 28th at 2pm we are going to have our first meeting to get things started. The meeting is going to be at the JDRF office in Crestwood, MO. The address is 50 Crestwood Executive Center. If you are interested, would like to get more information or are interested in joining the group and can’t make the meeting you can call Laura Roeder at (314) - 748 - 7067. Laura has helped us create our first event and to help get this group started. Our first fundraiser/event is going to be on Wednesday, August 6th at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Kirkwood, MO. If a gold flyer (click on link below or it’s also on JDRF’s Greater MO and Southern IL Facebook page) is presented to your server at Buffalo Wild Wings, 10% of the proceeds will go to JDRF. Come stop by, grab a bite to eat, meet other teens with T1D, join our group and help find a cure for diabetes! It’s going to be a lot of fun! Hope to see and meet you!
