I am a member of the Chicago Diabetes Project since its inception in 2004.
In 2009, I decided to run my 1st marathon for this cause. This is how I discovered that fundraising is a wonderful opportunity to feel part of a greater whole.
I have now 4 Marathons (3 times Chicago in 2009, 2012 and 2011, and this year Berlin, watch the movie on this page and look for a guy with yellow hair, orange t-shirt and black headband) and 3 Triathlons behind me.
With a medical history of severe hypertension, cardiac infarct, vertebral disk surgery and several other minor ailments, I am clearly a miracle of modern medicine.
So please, through your donation, help me push modern medicine even further, by finding a functional cure to diabetes.
Love you all,
P.S. Also please note that on the donation page, there is an OPTIONAL processing fee that is by default added to the payment. You DO NOT have to pay this. Just click the "optional processing fee" text and choose $0. Don't know why they add that by default! Would rather that money go to the charity!
