I am running in the "Pell Bridge Run" over the Newport Bridge in November with my neighbors and friends, Ainslee and Daragh Conrad. We are really excited to be doing this and thrilled that all of our registration and donations can benefit the charity of our choice. Ainslee was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was just 4 years old. Now she is 10 and tests her blood sugar 12 times a day. She measures her food and calculates how much insulin she needs for everything she eats. But since she plays on a travel soccer and basketball team, she also has to accommodate the challenges of her athletics. Diabetes does not slow her down, but it sure is a challenge for her. Insulin is available to keep her blood sugar in check and keep her alive, but it is not a cure. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure. Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
