BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes Center
Thank you for taking a look at my CrowdRise page! I'll mostly be updating my facebook page with new info on the Joslin Center, or how much I hate running, so check there for updates.
High Level View - Diabetes treatment and research is very close to my heart. Running (or walking/crawling) the NYC marathon is an easy way to draw attention to the work the Joslin Center is doing towards preventing, treating, and curing diabetes. Here's a little tidbit from the Joslin Center:
