Why do you run? If you're like Lyndsay you're running for a cure.
Among the 40,000 participants in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon there is a special group of 49 runners who will be running to cure diabetes. They are a part of Team Cellmates on the Run and as a team their goal is to raise $50,000 to "outrun" diabetes.
If you are on the course on October 9th make sure to cheer and encourage our team members just like Lyndsay as they get ready to cross the finish line at the Chicago Marathon!

Next month, on Wednesday, October 5th we will recognize the 6th anniversary of my son’s diagnosis with type one diabetes. In the diabetes community, we call this day our diaversary. Six years ago, on October 5, 2010, we discovered Bernie was sick and that he was going to be sick for the rest of his life. Back then I knew, days before, that he had diabetes. [ 590 more words ]
