THE STORY:

 Hi Friends! 


Welcome to my JDRF Pittsburgh Half Marathon Fundraising page! 


I've committed to two things:


1) With your love, help, and support raising $500 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.


2) Also with your encouragement running 13.1 miles (a half marathon) through the streets of Pittsburgh, PA. 


Many of you more than likely already know this, and to some it may be news, but when I was eleven years old, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). When I was taken to the hospital, I had brain swelling, and my sugars were in the 600's (Keep in mind that a normal blood sugar is somewhere between 80-120). My doctors and nurses told my mom that had she waited any longer to bring me in, I would not have made it. Since then, I have been blessed to lead a healthy lifestyle, and have managed my diabetes with shots early on, and now an insulin pump that I wear at all times. Diabetes has an effect on nearly every piece of my lifestyle. And I tell you this, not for your sympathy, but rather, to spread the word. 


Some 1.25 million Americans are living with T1D, including about 200,000 youth (less than 20 years old) and more than 1 million adults (20 years old and older).


1,2,540,000 people are diagnosed each year in the U.S.


1, 25 million people in the U.S. are expected to have T1D by 2050, including nearly 600,000 youth.


Between 2001 and 2009, there was a 21 percent increase in the prevalence of T1D in people under age 20.3.


By donating to my page/race you will help the JDRF work towards a cure for Type One Diabetes. Some facts about JDRF:

  • Since inception, JDRF has contributed more than $2B to T1D research.
  • JDRF is currently funding 50 human clinical trials of potential T1D therapies.
  • Approximately 80% of JDRF expenditures directly support T1D research and research-related education

I really appreciate your love and support and look forward to a world without Type One Diabetes! 


Peace, Love, and Finger Pricks, 


Erin
