Dear Family and Friends,
For the first time I have created a team to invite all of you that thought that it might be cool to be part of something bigger than any of us. Join me for the marathon, or run the 10K, or join us virtually!
It seems a bit more challenging to prepare for this amazing event as I age (yeah, 60+ can create challenges), but I am humbled by the even greater challeneges that Jenna faces each and every day. Diabetes never takes a day off, and its long term effects when not dealt with can be devestating.
As a Dad, I need to do my part to contribute to the ever growing rate of research and treatment for Daibetes. Did you know that Diabetes is growing in young people at an alarming rate? I was shocked to read that it increased over 20% in 8 years and type 2 over 30% in the same period.
I want my daughter, and all the young people that are dealing with Diabetes to know that there is an army of us that care enough to do something.
I also recognize that all of you are bombarded with requests, all that I ask is if not this one, concider soemthing dear to your heart and put not jsut yoru money, but your heart and sole so that it can make a difference!
A few additonal facts:
Diabetes is one of the most common and serious chronic diseases in the United States. The incidence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is rapidly increasing. 24 million Americans have diabetes, and 1 million more are diagnosed every year. This includes 15,000 children who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes each year.
You can help!
All of the funds raised by the Diabetes Action Team will support research to prevent, treat, and cure diabetes. Every dollar counts so please donate what you can. Together, we can make a difference.
BE PART OF THE CURE!
