I am running in this year’s 46th annual New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 6th. This marks my first New York Marathon and second marathon overall. I will be running this years’ marathon on behalf of the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation. A young friend of mine, Lilly Lashar, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on April 9th, 2015, and since then I have watched Lilly and her family fearlessly take on Type 1 Diabetes and the day to day struggle that comes with managing the illness. Lilly has embraced this obstacle gracefully with a quiet determination and toughness that is truly remarkable for a 14 year old girl. I am inspired by Lilly’s resolve and strength to fight this disease with the ultimate goal of curing Type 1 Diabetes. My hope is that through the funds I am able to raise, Team LILLYLULU will continue to leave a mark and come closer than ever before to their goal of finding a cure.
Thank you so incredibly much for your generosity, it means more than you know. I look forward to keeping you all updated on my NY Marathon journey!
