Dear Family and Friends,
As some of you may know, my little brother and best friend has had type 1 diabetes since he was 11 years old (now nearly 18). I've never really understood it until recently and its painful to watch someone so innocent be effected by somehting so uncontrollable. So this October I will be running in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and I've also decided to take on the added challenge of raising money for diabetes research. Please support me in my efforts to run 26.2 miles for a cause that has and continues to effect those close to me.
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!
Who knows if there will ever be a cure in our lifetime, but if I can do just a little bit to motivate myself, friends, and family to help then it's worth everything. 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!
