THE STORY:

I ran my first marathon last year - the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  When I crossed the finish line, I swore I would never do THAT again....

Now that the memories of the muscle cramps, the unbearable heat and general misery of that day have been overcome by the memories of the pride of conquering 26.2 miles, putting in four months and countless miles of training and raising almost $5,000 for the Joslin Diabetes Center, I've decided to do it again.  I am tremendously proud that I will again conquer the Chicago Marathon with my father, Rich, and that we will be raising funds and awareness for the Joslin Diabetes Center of Boston. This year I will post a stronger finish and raise even more funds for Joslin! 

The work of the Joslin Diabetes Center is important to our family.  My grandfather was a diabetic who died at a young age (63) as a result of a heart attack that was diabetes-related.  My father, a former patient of Joslin Diabetes Center at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center, was a Type 2 diabetic in his fifties and early sixties.  His health was spiraling out of control as a result of his diabetes until he had gastric bypass surgery, began to eat a more healthful diet and became an avid runner. 

We hope that you will consider making a donation to help the Joslin Diabetes Center accomplish their vision of a world free of diabetes and its complications. 

Every dollar counts and no donation is too small!
