Family Teams are the largest and fastest growing aspect of the Walk to Cure Diabetes, and play a vital role in the success of the Walk program. Forming a Family Team is easy and fun- it is a great way to spend time with family and friends and support a wonderful cause. In 2011, JDRF Austin Family Teams raised over $300,000!! Let’s try and beat that this year.
- Create a Family Team & register today!
- Start a letter-writing campaign – it’s the most effective and one of the easiest ways to raise money for the Walk. The average Family letter-writing campaign raises over $2,000! Click here for some great letters to help you get started!
For more information about forming a Family Walk Team, writing a letter, or anything else Family Team related, please contact JDRF Development Manager, Amy Hyman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 512.343.0663.
Doyou want to be a Say Boo Buddy?
A Say Boo Buddy is anyone affected by T1D. This includes a child with type 1, their siblings, or children of adults with type 1. Please submit a Halloween photo so we can line the Walk route to remind Walkers why we walk and raise funds! If you would like to be a Say Boo Buddy at this year’s Walk, please email a digital high resolution (300 dpi) JPEG file to email@example.com by September 30, 2012.
