THE STORY:

After I completed my second marathon in 2008, I knew I wanted to run one more in my lifetime. A year after that marathon, my niece Katie was diagnosed with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes at the age of four. Since then I have wanted to run a third marathon while raising money for diabetes research. Training for a marathon is a lot of hard work. Knowing my effort is satisfying my own running goal and helping to fund diabetes research gives me the extra motivation I need to keep on training! While running, I think of all the effort Katie needs to give to her health. I can easily do this for her and others with diabetes.

A cure would mean Katie wouldn’t have her blood sugar checked with a finger poke 6-8 times a day. A cure would mean my brother and sister-in-law wouldn’t have to watch everything she eats; keeping a mental tally of her carbohydrate count so they can dose her appropriately. A cure would mean Katie could go to a birthday party or on a field trip without her parents being on standby. A cure would mean Katie wouldn’t have to constantly wear an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor on her waist and with ports going into her body. A cure would mean Katie wouldn’t have low blood sugars where she feels irritable, hot, sleepy and hungry. A cure would mean Katie wouldn’t have high blood sugars where she feels nauseated, dizzy, hot, crabby and sweaty. A cure would mean that all who love her wouldn’t have to worry about her safety and potential for life altering complications. 

Please consider donating any dollar value to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). You could even pledge $1 for each mile I run for a donation total of $26.00. Thanks for supporting Katie and me!
