Thank you all for donating! I ran the race last weekend, and while much slower than my time 3 years ago I still finished it. My running partner  See more

THE STORY:

I am currently training for my 6th 1/2 marathon, but this time I would like to run for reason (besides my own health).

I am running to raise $500 in the next 10 weeks for the American Diabetes Association. Your donation will go directly to the American Diabetes Association to help prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Any size donation would be greatly appreciated, and is 100% tax deductible.  Thank you for your support!

Diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States in 2010, with 69,071 death certificates listing it as the underlying cause of death, and a total of 234,051 death certificates listing diabetes as an underlying or contributing cause of death.

Prevalence: In 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, has diabetes.

Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes.

Undiagnosed: Of the 29.1 million, 21.0 million were diagnosed, and 8.1 million were undiagnosed.

Prevalence in Seniors: The percentage of Americans age 65 and older remains high, at 25.9%, or 11.8 million seniors (diagnosed and undiagnosed).

New Cases: 1.4 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year.

Prediabetes: In 2012, 86 million Americans age 20 and older had prediabetes; this is up from 79 million in 2010.

Thank you for your support!
