BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes Center
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
After being at the finish line with my Mom last year during the bombings, I felt inspired to apply to run the 2014 marathon. As I was going through this process I realized I needed to run for an organization that I would feel passionate fundraising for. I can not think of an organization that has had a bigger impact on my family than the Joslin Diabetes Center. My Brother, Anthony and sister, Sarah are a source of constant inspiration to me in their ability to lead such successful lives while juggling the challenges of a diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes. Both Anthony and Sarah attribute their success to the supportive care and excellent education they have recieved from the Joslin Diabetes Center over the past 18 years. I feel so grateful to have been chosen to run with their team and fundraise to help raise money to find a cure for diabetes.The Joslin's mission is to prevent, treat and cure diabetes. Their vision is a world free of diabetes and its complications. I am so honored to support them.
THANK YOU SO MUCH to all my family and friends who helped me reach and exceed my fundraising goal! I am so overwhelmed with the support and kindness you have shown me. Can't wait for Marathon Monday!
