THE STORY:

It’s difficult to remember a time when my cousin Darrell and I haven’t been close.  Despite the 133 miles between us, some of my favorite memories are spending time with him and his family.  Much to my delight, our daughters Jocelyn and Leah are carrying on our traditions, enjoying visits with each other and a close friendship.

In March 2015, Jocelyn’s world was turned upside down when, without warning, she was diagnosed with Type I diabetes.  Her new reality consists of monitoring blood sugar levels, managing medications, hospital visits, disrupted school days and waiting out the times when she’s just not feeling well.  Navigating through this disease has been a challenge for Jocelyn and her parents.

In May I will be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for the second time.  It’s important for my miles to make a difference, so I have joined Team JDRF – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Their mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat Type I Diabetes and its complications.  My goal is to raise $1,300 - $100 for each mile I’m going to tackle in May. 

I would really appreciate it if you would consider donating to help me raise funds for Juvenile Diabetes Research.  I am excited to make my miles count for Jocelyn and to help JDRF turn Type 1 into Type None!
