Every year we have been so fortunate to be surrounded by the most supportive and beautiful group of friends, family, neighbors and even a few people we barely know, who come out to support Trey’s Avengers on Walk Day. This year was no different and we are so thankful to each one for helping to make it a great day.
This year we were joined by so many amazing people, including two other families who are personally affected by Type 1.
Trey had huge support from our amazing school here in Goochland County, Randolph Elementary. Here he is with some folks from RES, including one of his favorites, his 4th Grade teacher, Ms Gates.
It was a great day for a walk. Byrd Park is beautiful and makes for a lovely stroll. Below is Trey with one of his biggest supporters, his younger brother Tarver. Who at 8 years old can help Trey test his sugar, give him insulin and respond very well to dangerous lows. T1D is a family affair.
And while, we are working away with our Trey’s Avengers events and fundraising activities, I am grateful to have a group of local T1D moms in my corner. They each represent a different team, but we are all in this together. The teams represented below helped raise close to $100,000 this year. So proud of and thankful for these ladies.
Our team would like to send its greatest appreciation to everyone who comes together to help raise money to support JDRF, Type 1 reasearch and our son Trey. Every donor. Every walker. Everyone who shared a positive word. Every business that supported us. We were so excited (and overwhelmed with gratitude) to share that we raised over $16,000 this year, bringing our 4 year total to over $51,000. We truly could not do it without all of you!
