BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
After completing my first marathon recently (NYC 2016) I wanted to not only run another one I wanted to run one for a purpose. I was hoping to run the Boston Marathon this April but didn't want to find a random charity to run... I wanted to find one that meant something to me and my family.
As most of you know my wife Shannon is a type 1 diabetic we (especially her) spend lots of time at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston. Well low and behold Joslin had a Boston Marathon Team for 2017! I applied to be a member of the team and they chose me!
So I get to raise money for this amazing place that not only helps my wife live with this terrible disease but they also helped us bring our little guy Conrad into our lives as well.
Family and Friends let me log all the miles on the road and all the heavy lifting in the weight room all you need to do is open your hearts and your wallets for this great charity and wonderful place the Joslin Diabetes Center!!
