THE STORY:

Friends and Family - 


Thank you for visiting my JDRF fundraiser page. As many of you know, my brother Ryan is a T1 diabetic, so the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation is a cause near and dear to my family's heart. It is an honor to be able to run on Team JDRF again this year. Running a marathon is no simple feat, but it pales in comparison to the work and dedication a T1 has to do every day to keep themselves healthy! I am very fortunate to be able to physically run as well as not even have to think about regulating my blood sugar. It is my ultimate goal to eliminate the need for people like my brother to have to manage something my body is able to do on it's own. Please consider making a donation to JDRF not to get me to the finish line of 26.2 miles, but to get our loved ones with T1 to the finish line of TYPE NONE. Thank you in advance for your genorisity!!!


Love, Katelyn 


Team JDRF wrote -

 Team JDRF in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do our research efforts, advancements in T1D resources and support, and progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. Recently, our community has been celebrating many successes with beta cell replacement and the artificial pancreas, but the lives of those with Type One are still dealing with many challenges each day. 


Will you join us in the fight and the search for a cure? Accept the challenge today and help turn type one into type none! Please consider registering to run or making a donation to one of our dedicated team members! We will train hard and strive to cross that finish line and find a cure! 


What is Type One diabetes? Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults at any age and suddenly. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.
