BENEFITING: American Diabetes Association, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2016
On September 18, Natalie and I (Ayesha) will be running the Detroit Goddess Half Marathon in an effort to race against diabetes! Diabetes is not only prevalent in the U.S. but is also a common comorbidity associated with heart disease-the leading cause of death in our country. As current RN's and soon-to-be Nurse Practitioners, we believe in health promotion and disease prevention. This also affects us on a personal level, as we have cherished loved ones that suffer from this disease process. Through our efforts, we would like to encourage our friends and family to make healthier lifestyle choices, as well join us in fundraising to donate towards diabetes and heart disease research through the the American Diabetes Association. We would appreciate any donation, to reach our goal of $1000 in our race against diabetes!
