Hey guys! JDRF is an awesome organization that helps those living with type 1 diabetes to make their life simpler. They are also working on finding a cure and longer lasting treatments to make living with type 1 diabetes not as stressful. Some of you may know my boyfriend Eric, but for those who don't he has been living with type 1 diabetes since he was 3 so he inspired me to run the half marathon for this charity. Seeing first hand how this disease affects the day to day activities of Eric's life motivated me to raise money to hopefully find a cure one day. Any amount would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
