I, Nadera Osmani whom you probably seen running on the road, am joining forces to help cure Diabetes and create a brighter future for our generations to come. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. It affects more then 20 million Americans, and over 40 million of Americans are pre-diabetic or have type 2 diabetes.
The first time I heard about New York City Marathon, I wished one day in my life I would be able to run this race. After years of hard work that wish is now granted. On November 6th 2011, I will be participating in running the world’s greatest race “The ING New York City Marathon”.
As a New Yorker it is not possible to enter this race just by filling out and paying the application fee. To get a guaranteed entry for this year’s Marathon I had to complete 9 qualifying races and a volunteer work for Runners Club.
I am very excited to be able to join thousands of people and run through the streets of New York’s five borough, and the world’s most beautiful garden; Central Park.
This race will mean even more to me if I could run with a purpose and contribute to a great cause. Therefore I have decided to raise fund for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF) program, which is an organization that makes a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes in our local communities.
My contribution will be to run the entire 26.2 miles of the race and to donate $5 for every mile that I will complete. Since this great cause needs a lot more than what I can contribute, I would greatly appreciate if you could join this effort and support me in this cause and contribute to this charity.
All funds donated to me as a runner will go directly to JDRF to support their mission of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
So, please take a moment from your busy lives and contribute to the best of your ability!
Many thanks in advance!
