Team Christina is a brand new walk team to Beacon this season. Christina, her family, and friends, have walked with their best feet forward since their first walk in 1995 to show that they are healthy and that diabetes is not an anchor, but a way of life. Christina, captain of the team and a diabetic for 30 years, thinks of JDRF as a family, always answering questions and giving her the scoop on new technologies.
To this team, fundraising is another tool to use to help educate the public on this disease. They engaged the community in their walk journey by working one night at a friend’s restaurant in town and sharing their personal stories. The team made new friends, brought their story to life, and fundraised for JDRF. Christina thinks that the best part of the walk is the unspoken understanding that everyone is connected and has a lifestyle in common. Thanks for all your continued support!
