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 a physical therapist I am a strong believer in preventative therapy and I'm hoping with the money I raise I can be a part of finding the preventative treatment and possibly the cure for this disease.
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. Even $5 will make the biggest difference. So please donate what you can. Together, we can make a difference.
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement!
