With type 1 diabetes (T1D)
a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. The daily life of someone with T1D brings a multitude of challenges, including insulin injections that need to be carefully balanced with eating and activity, disruptive glucose monitoring, sleepless nights—and wishing for a tomorrow where this struggle doesn’t exist.
Living with T1D means there are no days off and there is no cure. But there is hope.
This August I will be embarking on a solo run through the hills and
valleys of Luzerne County, PA in an effort to raise money and awareness about a disease very close to me and my family. The trek will begin near Berwick, head north to Rickett's Glen State Park, and end in Dureya, covering a total mileage near 55 miles.
Your generosity will help JDRF fund life-changing breakthroughs to remove the incredible daily burden of this disease—until it no longer exists.
Please support my fundraiser by making a donation today.
Keep moving forward!
