A Great Big Thanks!

We did our first JDRF Walk To Cure Diabetes on September 17 at the Milwaukee County Zoo.  It had only been 2 1/2 months since Madeline's diagnosis, so there was not much time to get organized.  I quickly created the Silkworth Family team and recruited my sister, niece and nephew to walk with us.

We sent out our emails asking for donations for our JDRF walk team, not really knowing what to expect.  Well, the donations were overwhelming!!!   Because of our very loving family, friends, and friends of friends generous donations, we collected almost $1600.00 for the Silkworth Family team!

A very special thanks to the Lake Beulah Drift Skippers and Star Motorcycle Chapter 372 for their club donations!  We are so lucky to know such great people and be apart of such wonderful clubs!

We may have had a small walk team this year, but we put many miles on and had a great day!  We are already planning next years walk and hope to recruit many more walkers!

Because of all the generous donations, the Silkworth Family team recieved 2 awards from JDRF.  We will proudly display these to thank all those who have supported our goal to cure diabetes.
