I first heard about the Chicago Diabetes Project in 2016. I ran a marathon for them in 2016, as well as 2018. This will be my third time running for them. The reason I choose to support them is their integrity and dedication to finding a functional cure for type 1 Diabetes. I am impressed with Dr. O, his committment to this project and his brilliant team who are working to bring islet cell transplants to the people who need them. I want to support their work and their research. They are very close to finishing their goal.
