We would not be able to educate and motivate people around the country who
have diabetes without the generous support of our individual donors.
Please help us continue and give today!
Your donations make a difference in people's lives.
Our last conference was on June 7, 2014 in Washington, DC.
Here are just a few things that conference participants said:
Help TCOYD Meet the Challenge
TCOYD is excited to announce that 2014 brings additional support funding from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust as well as a new and exciting fundraising challenge.
The Helmsley Trust contribution that was monumental in the development of TCOYD's type 1 track, has challenged TCOYD to raise $75,000 in NEW donations. These new donations need to be gifts of $2,000 or more and from a person, foundation, or corporation who has never given that much previously. If TCOYD can meet this challenge by May 14, 2015, The Helmsley Charitable Trust will match it with an additional $75,000.
Please donate today and be a part of TCOYD's mission to educate and motivate people with diabetes to live happy, healthy, and productive lives.
If you are interested in donating Dr. Edelman wants to hear directly from you. Send an email to his personal account at [email protected]
