Walk registration is now open

The JDRF has announced the date for Arden’s 2009 Walk to Cure Diabetes and registration is open.


The details...


the walk

where: Bucks County Community College - Google Map Link

when: October 25, 2009 at 9 AM

become a walker


signing up to walk only takes a moment, all you have to do is click on this link, provide a few details about yourself paying extra attention to the Participation Information section filling it out exactly like in the example below.

If you are walking as a family please sign up each member individually so that we can keep track of how many people are on Arden’s team (it makes getting the walk shirts together much easier).



why walk?


Last year the JDRF walk raised 1.8 million dollars nation wide.  Arden’s team collected over $12,000 making us one of the top ten fundraisers in the Philadelphia area.  The money raised funds that support countless research initiatives with the goal of curing type I diabetes in our lifetime.


Please consider joining us this October, last year our team was 50 strong and we all had a wonderful morning strolling through the park.  Please take a moment to watch our 2008walk video and then sign up to join us in 2009.  Ask a friend or ten to join you, many of our walkers have their own mini-team within our team.



how do you raise funds?


After you sign up you’ll get a link to your personal walk page, from there all you have to do is send the link to your friends and family, post it on your FaceBook page and so on.  Most walkers are able to raise $100 with very little effort, in fact one of our supports raised nearly $3,000 almost exclusively through FaceBook in 2008.  If fundraising makes you uncomfortable we completely understand but please don’t let that stop you from joining us on walk day.


Please contact me with any questions, I’d be happy to help in any way that I can.  As always we are humbled by your support.
