Dear Family and Friends,
I've officially lost my mind. This October 26th, I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon in Arlington, VA, to raise 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.
I am running in honor of my husband Michael's grandfather, William E. Javert, a former Marine who has lost both his legs to type 2 diabetes. Bill has long supported my Pan-Mass Challenge rides, but questioned whether it's really a challenge if "they let you have a bicycle." Hopefully, 26.2 miles on foot will be enough for both of us!
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!
