Thank you all so much for your support! Together as a team we plan on spreading awareness for Diabetes by crushing our fundraising goals. This year, 100% of our fundraising efforts will be donated directly to The Joslin Diabetes Center of Boston, your generous contributions will be funding research, education and hopefully some day a much needed cure for Diabetes! With the help of our wonderful families and friends, we will take on The Falmouth Road Race and cross the finish line together, knowing our efforts and your contributions will be making a difference in the lives of those afflicted by Diabetes. Running for Joslin Diabetes Center is near and dear to our hearts as this year, Carol and Ken’s 11 year old son Brendan, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Brendan’s courage is our inspiration. He has been brave, strong and amazingly positive since his diagnosis. He will not allow Diabetes to limit his potential or deter him from being the caring, confident young man he is. We hope to carry his strength and determination with us throughout our journey and across the finish line. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity, every little bit counts!
“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.” ― Denzel Washington
