$14,830 !!!



Wow! That is how much Team Charlie's Angels raised for juvenile diabetes research in this year's Walk to Cure Diabetes. Thank you all so much for your support in what was an incredibly successful fundraising campaign.

Scientists are closer than ever to finding a cure and many believe it could be reached in Charlie's lifetime. Your generous contributions have brought us one step closer to that momentous day. We are so grateful.

We have also received so many kind notes and words of support. We're fortunate to have such great friends. The response from our team's fundraising efforts has been overwhelming and heartwarming.

A special thanks to our family and friends who braved 40 mph wind gusts, c-c-c-c-cold conditions and the ever-present odor of farm animals as we walked the Cook College campus of Rutgers University. We looked splendid in our DIABETESAURUS - MAKE IT EXTINCT t-shirts.

Charlie enjoyed the day. He sloshed in a muddy field, scared the bejesus out of a group of horses and even got a chance to use his Jedi mind tricks on rival walkers. Sorry about that Madeline's Mission.

Woo-HOO! And next year will be even better! It WAS a wonderful day, 'cause I love the smell of horse manure in the morning.
