BENEFITING: Joslin Diabetes Center
ORGANIZER: Joslin Diabetes Center
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Simone and I are very excited to run the 2016 NYC marathon as part of Team Joslin! Not only are we training very hard, but more importantly, we are going to leverage all that training and hard work to help raise money for the Joslin Diabetes Center. We are reaching out to you to help us raise at least $2,500 each for this worthy cause! Any amount you can give is very much appreciated - just click the big donate button! To know you are supporting us is much more important and meaningful to us than the amount of your donation.
As former manager of the Healthy Youth Program of the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, and the Institute's former director for 19 years, respectively, Simone and I are passionate about healthy living and healthy eating, including the role of diet, lifestyle, and vitamins in promoting optimal health and preventing chronic disease, including cardiometabolic diseases and type II diabetes.
Simone and I strive to be positive role models: We eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy body weight, take a multivitamin/multimineral supplement and some other dietary supplements (vitamins C and D, fish oil, lipoic acid, and acetyl-L-carnitine), and exercise regularly. One of the greatest joys in our lives is to go on a long run or walk together with our three dogs in the beautiful mountains and forests surrounding Bend, Oregon.
We are so pleased that we can bring together our passion for an active and healthy life with the good cause of raising money for the Joslin Diabetes Center. Please help us support this important and worthy cause! Thank you so much!
