Mississippi's Walks for Diabetes!

The DFM is the only diabetes organization in Mississippi that keeps your donations in the state to help fellow Mississippians.  Your fundraising will not only help newly diagnosed children receive backpacks of information and provide a lifeline to their parents, but will also assist those with diabetes in our state get the medications and information they need in order to live well with diabetes!!  Your donations will help educate teachers about how to properly care for their students with diabetes throughout the school day, advocate for diabetes legislation, and so much more.  

If you have diabetes, or love someone who does, the DFM is already part of your support crew.  Please join the walk nearest you and be part of ours!

To Create, Register for or Donate to a Crowdrise Team

Step 1:  Choose the walk nearest you!  This is the best way to ensure your team is created as part of the right Walk Campaign and ensure your donations and registrations will be credited to the team.

Select one: Columbus - Gulf Coast - Hattiesburg - Jackson - Meridian - Oxford

Step 2: Within each walk Campaign, you can

"Donate" which lets you select a team to donate to or

"Join"  which allows you to create a team or join an existing team or

"Register" Which allows you to buy multiple "tickets" but will only let you assign them to benefit your team one at a time.  Best for individuals supporting a team.

Team Captains will want to choose "Join" and create an online fundraiser on Crowdrise so that friends and family can easily donate and their registrations will be credited to the team.

Step 3: Follow up and encourage your donors within your team fundraiser every week or so.

Please contact the DFM for help if you have any difficulties accessing Crowdrise or setting up your page.  Crowdrise itself also has very nice support people.

Remember to check back often or follow the DFM Facebook page for updates. In the meantime, feel free to contact us for more details.
