BENEFITING: American Diabetes Association, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2013
Diabetes has had a huge impact on my life. My grandmother was diagonosed when I was very young. I remember her not being able to get ice cream and other goodies with me anymore and I didn't get why.
Over the course of a few years, her health deteriated and she lost half of one of her legs and half of her other foot. She was confided to a wheel chair and couldnt enjoy life the way she use to.
After a long battle she passed away in 2001. She was my rock and I will never forget her. In honor of her, I've taken it upon myself to try and live a healthier life. I don't want to end up with type 2 diabetes like she did. I also want to help others anyway I can with this.
This is why I am running for the American Diabetes Association. I may not be fast, but I will finish.
Please donate to a good cause, or even join my team and run or walk yourself!
