In January 2000, two childhood friends, Rich Noonan and John Hurley, teamed up to create and organize a road race to raise money for diabetes awareness. Although neither of them have diabetes, both had sisters who did. John's sister Shannon passed away in 1995 due to diabetic complications and the race is held in Shannon's memory. Rich's sister, Patty, had diabetes for 38 years prior to becoming diabetes free after a pancreas transplant. Although Patty is now diabetes free, she had endured many complications over the years, including: two kidney transplants, cataract surgeries, and a bout of breast cancer. This race is held to honor Patty's courage and the courage of those who face the daily difficulties while living with diabetes.
Proceeds generated from this event will benefit JDRF. With your support and generosity we will create awareness in the community and help JDRF progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people's lives until no one has to fear developing this disease. By joining Team JDRF, you'll raise money to help fund critical T1D research and create a world without T1D.
The challenge we've set ourselves—to raise money and T1D awareness with JDRF—is modest compared to the daily challenges of life with T1D, which involves a 24/7, unrelenting cycle of blood sugar testing and insulin injections to manage the disease. We’re already hard at work! We hope you consider participating in our event. If you’re unable to partake in the fun, we kindly ask that you support our efforts with a gift.
Thank you for your support—we can’t do it without you!
