Fundraising Honor Roll

Dear Family and Friends,

 

This October I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon.  I have also taken on the added challenge of raising money for vital diabetes research.  Please support me in my efforts to run 26.2 miles for a cause that means so much to me.

 

I grew up hearing comments like, “Your uncle or your aunt, or my grandfather died from sugar”, sounds familiar?   As a child, I never knew the technical term diabetes, but neither did anyone else.  However, I went through life with the understanding that sugar could kill you, and I never knew the remedy to solving this problem of losing love ones because of our love for sugar.  You see, through education and knowledge later in life, I realized that all my love ones who had died because of sugar actually died from complications due to diabetes.   And, I also realized that sugar consumption alone didn’t kill or so much caused diabetes.  There was a culmination of life threatening habits and life styles that contributed to feeding this menacing monster that could kill if changes weren’t implemented.  Now, I can make a difference.

 

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.  26 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 money I raise for the Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation will fund research to prevent, treat, and cure diabetes.  Every dollar counts so please donate what you can.  Together, we can make a difference together, please help!

 

At age 66, I now know why I still run.  I run for those who can’t, and this makes me feel good.

 

Thank you for your support and encouragement
