THE STORY:

I'm running my first marathon with the JDRF Marathon Team to help raise money to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. Our family joined this cause because several people very close to us have type 1. We've seen them struggle with it for years, and have been moved and inspired many times by how strong they've been in the face of adversity.  I included a summary of what type 1 diabetes is below. If you can help out in any way, it will mean a great deal to a large number of people. The money goes directly to JDRF, which funds research to find a cure. Thank you for your consideration.

Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy. Type 2 diabetes, which is far more common, occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin or doesn't make enough insulin.

Various factors may contribute to type 1 diabetes, including genetics and exposure to certain viruses. Although type 1 diabetes typically appears during adolescence, it can develop at any age.

Despite active research, type 1 diabetes has no cure, although it can be managed. With proper treatment, people who have type 1 diabetes can expect to live longer, healthier lives than in the past.
