THE STORY:

In October 2015 I lost my father, Stephen D. King, to complications from Type 1 Diabetes. He was not quite 62 years old - too young. My grandfather died the same way: also Type 1 Diabetes, also a heart attack, also 62 years old. I was 12. It's been like cruel history repeating itself.

Type 1 Diabetes is a brutal autoimmune disease which cannot be prevented and currently has no cure. It strikes children and adults, and has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle! It has to be managed 24/7 with blood-sugar testing and insulin injections.  No matter how attentive one is, the risks remain high for blindness, nerve damage, high blood pressure, stroke and organ damage... my dad developed coronary artery disease and suffered heart failure, although he was thin, fit and ran regularly.

We need to find a cure.  Any donation and any dollar amount helps!  The minimum donation is $10 and one of my personal favorite amounts is $26.20 -- that's one dollar for every mile i will run on marathon day...

On November 6th, I’ll be running the New York City Marathon for Team JDRF in his honor. My father was a runner and he adored every borough of NYC when he visited me. I will run to raise money and awareness for this terrible, widely misunderstood disease, and I’ll run for my own health and healing. But most of all, I’m running for you Daddy.
