Fundraising Honor Roll

Dear Family and Friends,

This October I will be running in the Bank of America Chicago 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.

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.

As many of you know I have spent the past 20 years working with toddlers, children, teens and young adults who every day face the challenges of Type 1 diabetes. Their courage, persistence and never ending hope for a cure have been an inspiration to me. Every mile I run - I run for them - Help me raise money for the cure that they so dream of !

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!
