March:

St.Mark’s JDRF Kids Walk – This is the top school for JDRF fundraising in the country! You can read more about their amazing efforts here. I love this event – the Charlotte mascots come out and the whole school rallies behind supporting their friends with type 1.

JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes Kickoff Lunches: Three area walks, so three different lunches to get the teams fired up. I’m the Family Walk Chair this year. It’s great to meet the families and see how creative some of these teams are in raising money and support.
