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.
Having diabetes for more than half of my life, I do not recall what life is like without this disease. I have been blessed with a great support team since the day I was diagnosed. I have managed this disease to the best of my abilities for over 16 years, but would love there to be a cure.
Some of my closest friends have been instrumental in me becoming a runner. Two years ago I ran my first 5k with my wife. She has also been extremely supportive of my goals to successfully run a marathon. In the past year I have run 4 half marathons, the Columbus Marathon, and numerous 5,10,15k's. Now I want even more.
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.
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement!
Yours in Running/Diabetes,
