THE STORY:

Gautam wrote -

Dear friends and family,

After letting enough time go by to forget how painful it was to run last year's marathon in Chicago, I'm planning to run another marathon this year! This time, taking a tour of a new city - NYC! Same great charity as last time - Chicago Diabetes Project "Cellmates On The Run", but have upped my fundraising goal to $3000, and would love to get your help to raise money for the run. Would really appreciate a donation in any amount at all and a little prayer for my legs to survive November 4th! :-)

Thanks!

P.S. Also please note that on the donation page, there is an OPTIONAL processing fee that is by default added to the payment. You DO NOT have to pay this. Just click the "optional processing fee" text and choose $0. Don't know why they add that by default! Would rather that money go to the charity!

WE RUN TO ADVANCE DIABETES RESEARCH: As individuals we have a presence, but together as team we are a force. The Cellmates on the Run is a running group that brings people together to achieve a common goal: to raise awareness in the fight of an aggressively growing epidemic - DIABETES.

Specifically, we run for the Chicago Diabetes Project (CDP) – the first scientific collaboration of its kind. Physicians, scientists, engineers, chemists and molecular biologists from three continents have a common goal—find a cure for diabetes as fast as possible. The mission of the CDP is to make islet cell transplantation the most promising treatment for diabetes today, and a viable option for all who suffer with diabetes.

In 2009, the Cellmates on the Run became an official charity with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the ING New York Marathon. Our first year was immensely successful: 131 total runners raised over $200,000 for The Chicago Diabetes Project. We hope to raise $500,000.00 in 2012.
