I am excited to announce that I will be running in the New York City Marathon on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. As many of you may know, Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. You cannot prevent it, and there is currently no cure.
My Dad was diagnosed when he was 30 – right before he and my Mom were married. I have watched him battle the disease my entire life and feel very passionate about raising money to help find a cure. My Aunt Molly, my Dad’s sister, also has Type 1 Diabetes so I have double the reason to raise money and awarness and of course to complete the marathon.
Thank you in advance - I am so grateful for any support you are able to give.
