THE STORY:

I am excited to share that on November 5th, 2017 I will be running the New York City Marathon for the American Diabetes Association!

Every 23 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes, giving rise to more than 29 million Americans who struggle daily with the disease. This insidious, and often silent disease has significantly impacted my family because of its strong genetic predisposition. For as long as I can remember, I witnessed my grandmother, Anna Anaya, endure the most devastating consequences affiliated with the disease such as poor circulation, amputation, and ultimately renal failure. My grandmother succumbed to the disease in 2006 after having spent three days a week for eleven years receiving kidney dialysis. While she lived with diabetes' debilitating effects, my grandmother never allowed the disease to prevent her from enjoying life. She was a devoted grandmother to my sister Lindsey and me, and she and my grandfather frequently traveled worldwide even while receiving dialysis.

Growing up with a front row seat to the effects of diabetes is what inspired me to study and earn a degree in nutrition from James Madison University in 2013. I am currently working toward a master’s degree in human nutrition and functional medicine, as I am committed to continuing to educate others on the importance of proper nutrition to prevent the devastating effects of diabetes that my grandmother endured.  

I will proudly run with the ADA because it is critical that we continue to advocate for more research and education to hopefully one day eradicate this disease by finding a cure.  Please join me in this journey as I look to raise $3,500 for the ADA by Marathon Day, November 5th, 2017.  Many thanks for your consideration.
