THE STORY:

 

I am running the NYC Marathon this year in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and in hopes of finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

Olivia and I are among the luckiest parents in the world. When you have three daughters who light up your life but at the same time fear for your life makes you both proud and sad.

Because I look at my girls and see so much of myself (don't worry they are essentially very good kids despite the resemblance) and because I would never want them or any other child to go through the daily reminder of this disease  is why my whole family has a passion to help and is supporting me in the NYC Marathon. My children are the epicenter of our lives and to beat this disease shows them that you can do anything.

The reason why I began running with JDRF 6 years ago did not begin with my diagnosis (over 40 years ago) it actually began with a bed time story to Charlotte and Juliana. When Charlotte was 6 and Juliana was 3 I came home from work and started reading a book to the girls and when I was done because I had to take an Insulin shot, Juliana reached up to kiss me and said " Daddy I don't want you to be sick anymore".

Elisabeth wants me to share "Lucky Charms" with her. Juliana get's sad when she see's me sticking myself with needles. Charlotte is constantly trying to find some kind of food we can share together. We all want a cure.

Anyone that is touched by this disease knows the importance of finding a cure.

Please join my family and help us put an end to TYPE 1.

Thank You,

Pete
