THE STORY:

This April I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon with Team Joslin. It is my first marathon and hopefully not my last, but most importantly it is for a wicked awesome cause! My brother Ed has Type 1 Diabetes and is a regular patient at the Joslin. My goal is to raise $7,500 for Team Joslin and run to show my support for Ed and appreciation for the Joslin Diabetes Center for everything they do for him! Life is not easy and Type 1 Diabetes definitely doesn’t make it any easier. My brother lives with it every day and still manages to be one of the smartest, kindest and funniest guys I know. He definitely has his moments, but if you know him like I do, you know he really is one of the better guys out there. I can’t even begin to understand what he faces everyday but I will do whatever it takes to help!

My brothers are the two most important people in my life and I know they are both going to do some amazing things in this world. There are very few things I wouldn’t do for either of them, so a marathon is a no brainer. If you can, please donate to Team Joslin and help me support the Joslin Diabetes Center and a guy that is going to change the world.

All my best,

Faith
