THE STORY:

     I am running the Chicago Marathon(26.2miles) on October 8, 2017 with Team Joslin.  We are raising money to support the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, they are specialist in diabetes treatment and research.  I have been raising money for JDRF for the past three years but decided to try a different charity this year and little bit bigger challenge.
     I challenge myself to run for my son 5 year old son Gavin.  Type one diabetes is his challenge. My goal is to raise $1500.  Along with my mom who decided to take this challenge to we will raise money and train with the ultimate goal of sucess.
    Gavin is a boy that loves basketball, riding bikes, pokemon, and playing at the park.  He is just a normal kid with the daily challenge of managing Type One diabetes with the help of his family, teachers, and nurses. Testing blood sugar, taking insulin, wearing pump and CGM sites, and many bandages have been a part of his life now for three years and will continue till there is a cure. Please support me as I try to support everyone living wih diabetes.

Founded in 1898, Joslin Diabetes Center is world-renowned for its deep expertise in diabetes treatment and research. Joslin is dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes and ensuring that people with diabetes live long, healthy lives. 

We develop and disseminate innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries throughout the world. Joslin is an independent, non-profit institution affiliated with Harvard Medical School, and a federally-funded Diabetes Research Center.

All of the money raised by the Team Joslin program supports the High Hopes Fund here at Joslin Diabetes Center. This fund is unrestricted and supports the Center's greatest needs. These funds ultimately contribute to Joslin’s capacity to prevent, treat and cure diabetes through cutting-edge research, comprehensive patient care and pioneering education programs.
