EVENT DATE: Feb 23, 2014
Libby Engelbert is one of the thousands of children who has been diagnosed with Type1 Juvenile Diabetes, a disease there is still no cure for. (JDRF) is the leading global organization focused on T1JD research with a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1JD.
Stronger than her favorite animal in the world ("a mean shark"), Libby takes this disease head on every single day with such grace, courage, and a smile. We (Mara & Jenna) are running the Disney Princess Half Marathon in honor of Libby's strength on Feb 23, 2014. Mara isn't a fan of running, and Jenna isn't a fan of tutus…making it clear Libby has us wrapped around her finger. We are running to bring awareness of this disease, fundraise in support of JDRF, and to make Libby the Mean Shark feel like a Princess. Please help JDRF find a cure! No donation is ever too small. Thank you so much for your support!
