Walk Day is a special day for multiple reasons. It’s the most special, we think, for those who have T1D. For this reason, we like to spotlight those living with T1D along our Walk route. We hope that you’ll participate in this fun program!
We are again asking our families to create their own sign to spotlight their T1D’s. These signs are meant to highlight those we Walk for. Make sure to include a picture, age and date of diagnosis – show their personality, favorite things, talents, etc. Make them feel special at the Walk! Sample pictures included below.
To participate in this program, simply pick up a blank sign* (or use your sign from last year) from one of our specified pick-up/drop off locations, help your T1D decorate the sign to their taste and drop off at one of the same locations prior to** Walk Day. Signs will be located in a plastic bin with JDRF Sneakers on them, usually on the porch of the home (or right within the office).
