THE STORY:

Hello,

Thank you for visiting my page.  This will be my 3rd Pittsburgh Half Marathon.   I have decided to run the half as part of team JDRF to celebrate my little sister Maura.  She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was 10 and is graduating from college the friday of marathon weekend this year.  The training runs, cross training, nutrition planning, and everything else involved in a race is nothing compared to the work my sister does on a daily basis to stay healthy.  Her diabetes has been part of her life, but she has done an amazing job controlling it so it is  part of her story and not the entire story.  The best gift I could give her is to help JDRF to turn type one into type NONE.  Please consider helping me get JDRF one step close the the ultimate finish line of type NONE.

#runningfortypeNONE


Team JDRF in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do our research efforts, advancements in T1D resources and support, and progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. Recently, our community has been celebrating many successes with beta cell replacement and the artificial pancreas, but the lives of those with Type One are still dealing with many challenges each day. 


Will you join us in the fight and the search for a cure? Accept the challenge today and help turn type one into type none! Please consider registering to run or making a donation to one of our dedicated team members! We will train hard and strive to cross that finish line and find a cure! 


What is Type One diabetes? Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.
