BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes Center
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
This is my THIRD year running the Boston Marathon for the Joslin Diabetes Center. Raising money to help put an end to diabetes has become the most important part of my year.
Over the past 2 years I've raised over $20,000 and this year I hope to continue that trend. I also hope to run a personal best and break 4 hours....as of today, I am 9 minutes short of that goal.
Personally, I do not have diabetes, but a very good friend, Claire Clendenen does. For the past 2 years she has been my patient partner through this and has showed me the ins and outs of this disease.
One of my tennis students, Lydia also copes with diabetes and is involved with Joslin as well.
I am running for them and for everyone else who has diabetes. Lets find a cure.
