Dear Family and Friends,
This October I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon. I won't claim that I started out with the lofty goal of using the marathon to raise money for charity but I am glad that this is how it has worked out. I will be raising money for diabetes research as this is a disease that has greatly affected my family. Please support me in my efforts to run 26.2 miles and to raise money for such an important cause.
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.
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!
