BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes Center
I am excited to be part of Team Joslin as I run my first marathon this October in Chicago! It is my hope that by taking this small step and raising money and awareness that together, we can improve the lives of people living with diabetes and eventually stop this epidemic.
Over the years, I have met many individuals living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes- family, aunt, uncle, friends. I see the challenges they face daily in order to balance this disease- ups and downs of blood sugar, constant injections, numerous doctor appointments, added attention and planning for activities such as tennis, running, traveling, etc. I hope that by taking on this marathon, I can make a difference for them!
Thank you for your support - I could not do this without you!
