Our Message

Family & Friends

As you know our 7-year-old, Zachary, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in September 2018. Since that time, he (&our family) has had to adapt as to how to best care for his health. Zach’s day now includes 4-6 insulin injections, fingers pricks to check his blood sugar & making healthy choices to control blood sugar. What has NOT changed in the slightest is his high energy level, love of biking, fishing, reading, camping & general crazy attitude!  The biggest lesson we have learned this year is that this disease will not stop or limit Zach.

In June our family attended a fantastic weekend at Camp Nejeda’s family camp. It was an amazing experience for our entire family but especially Zachary. We got to watch Zach enjoy all the best things about summer camp (zip line, sports, crafts, games, camp fires, canoeing, fishing & songs) while being surrounded by not just children but adults exactly like him. It was the first time since being diagnosed Zach got to interact and see a room filled with people wearing pumps, monitors, checking blood sugar and living life just like him. After our weekend our family decided to help support this wonderful place, that is why we are walking for Camp Nejeda. We love that the camp allows ALL children with type 1 to attend regardless of financial backgrounds. About one-third of campers receive financial assistance each summer.

Our family will be participating in the walkathon at Camp Nejeda that will take place on Sunday, September 29th. Camp Nejeda is located in Stillwater, NJ about an hour from Morristown. It's should be a fun day for all ages which will include the walk, a picnic lunch, access to the zipline, archery course, boating on the lake, bounce houses, arts & crafts, games, raffles, 50/50, tricky tray and more. 

You can support our fundraising efforts by either sponsoring our team with a donation or by joining our walkathon team and walking with us.  If would like to sponsor the team please click the 'Donate Now' link.  If you would like to walk with us, please click the 'Join The Team' link.  If you join the team, you have the option of paying the registration fee, or you can fundraise along with us to cover the registration fee (or more!).  Every person, including kids, that plans to attend the walk needs to register.  Please contact us if you have any registration or fundraising questions. 

With love,

Mark, Julie, Abigail, Zach & Max  (And Rufus...Zach's teddy bear which also has T1D)
