JDRF Walk: Tyler Park 

When the walk began yesterday at 10 am we had collected $6,500!  Twenty-Four hours later as I type this the donations are still coming in!  Our current total (for now) is $6846!   

When I started ‘Arden’s Day’ I didn’t know exactly what it was gong to be.  At first it seemed like a great way to educate friends.  Then it became a great way to raise donations for the JDRF.  Now it’s all that and more!  People are approaching me to say what a profound effect Arden’s Day has had on them, so I’m going to keep it going.  We are going to sponsor a poker tournament, host a movie night, sell shirts and much more.  All of the proceeds will of course go to the JDRF.  So keep an eye on your inbox.

No words can truly express how grateful we are for all of the time and effort everyone gave to the walk.  If you donated, walked or passed the site on to a friend you helped raise this money!  And you did more then just generate donations.  The walk is full of people who have just learned that their child has Type I diabetes.  Last year that walk helped lessen the insane fear I felt after Arden was diagnosed.  Seeing all of those kids living with type I was a huge boost for me.  I like to think that we provided that same confidence to people yesterday.  You should all feel very proud! 

Please take a minute to read the names of the people that made our walk the success that it was...

One last thing: We owe a huge thank you to Jared Philips of Face It Studios for the fantastic drawing of Arden that he donated!  We used it on our walk team t-shirts and on thesplash page of   I urge all of you to use Jared at your child’s next party.  He’s done a fantastic job for us countless times!  Thank you Jared!

Thanks for reading!  On to JDRF Walk  pictures and video.
