Walk to Cure Diabetes 2010.

This year, Julia’s Jokers took part in JDRF’s Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with other walkers across the country, as we tried to reach our goal of raising $90 million. It took place in Wilmington at Mayfare Town Center NC. Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children. There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide  and its making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.

It was so much fun and we had a great turn out. It was a bit chilly this morning as we made or way from Swansboro to Wilmington around 7a.m. We had a car full and many more following us out there. It was a fun filled day with food, music from the Craig Woolard band, face painting, pumpkin painting, and more. Of course being out in the sun for half the day I ended up with a sunburn on my face. But all in all it was a great day. Here are a few pics from the event.

 

 

I am exhausted, but I think I have enough in me to go to the pub for a much-needed beer. Hope everyone enjoys their Halloween and be safe.. Cheers. 🙂
