On November 6, 2016 I will be running in the TCS NYC Marathon! I would love your support to help raise funds for my team, Team JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).
My family became aware of the JDRF a few years ago when my nephew, Aidan Maloney, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 11 years old.
Aidan was a healthy child and his diagnosis changed his life (and his families)! Aidan now has to monitor his blood sugar and give himself insulin injections throughout the day, but he never lets it get him down!! He continues to be a straight A student and a top athlete! Aidan gives it all he's got everyday...and so will I, on Nov 6th to honor him!
After years of watching the marathon and always saying that" someday I would run the NYC marathon", I finally decided to do it together with my sister. I have never run more than 6 miles, so this will definitly be tough...I may need to be carried over the finish line but running (or crawling) 26.2 miles is nothing compared to what children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes face every single day.
Thanks in advance for your support!! Also, if your company matches donations - please consider matching any donation you make!
