In July 2016 my 12 years old nephew, Nicholas was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. As a young, active boy he now had to slow down and alter his life style. Nicholas could no longer randomly grab a snack, an extra slice of pizza or push his plate away before finishing without considering where his blood sugar level. On Sunday, September 16th I am running the Newport Liberty half marathon. I can't think of a better way to run then with the inspiration and strength Nicholas shows everyday as he lives with diabetes. All money raised will be donated to the JDRF - Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
