Walk to Cure 2011

Our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is on September 24.

Here is a sneak peek at this year's video...



And these are our shirts!

Of course, the shirts have her actual name on them!  The font is going to be slightly different - but this is the shirt!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!

My good friend, Steve Reed, designed these shirts.  Steve and I have been friends practically since birth.  He's a super talented illustrator.  He's illustrated quite a few Spongebob books in addition to lots of other incredible things!  You can see more of Steve's art by clicking HERE.  Sweetpea loves Steve to pieces and thinks of him as HER friend!  To see pics of Steve and Sweets and the shirts he designed for us last year, click HERE.

The walk is always a special day...  It's a very special day for everyone involved.  It's very humbling to see so many people join us in honor of Sweets.  We are blessed to have many friends and family who support us - either thru raising money, attending the walk, or both!  We look at the walk as a day to honor Sweets and everything she goes through.  It's day for her to be QUEEN (not really sure how that is different from OTHER days but...!).  And we feel so lucky to be able to share it with our online family, too!

  2. Do you provide a shirt for each walker or charge them for the cost of the shirt. I'm trying to plan our own walk. Thanks for any advice.

  3. I'll be at that same walk- we missed each other last year! Our shirts this year are purple with colored printing of the JDRF sneakers across the front and our team name, The Sugar Sharks. I'll be looking for you!

    Who do you get to print your shirts? (Assuming your design guy doesn't print them himself.) I called all around this area and the online full-color ones turned out cheaper for us.
