THE STORY:

Back at it again trying to cure diabetes!

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

This November, I will be running 26.2 miles through the 5 borough in the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon.  In doing so, I aim to raise $5000 to support the Jueveinle Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), a cause very near and dear to my heart. The money I raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.

JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.

Please support me and donate to my fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?

Thank you for your support!
