Help Support and Inspire People with Type 1 Diabetes

In July I will be running in the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage 187 mile, 24 hour race along with 11 other athletes with type 1 diabetes as a part of Team Glucomotive.  I will be running 3 different times over the course of 24 hours, covering approx. 18 miles total.

I am raising money for our sponsor, Insulindependence (iD) and I need your support by making a donation to this fantastic organization.  iD changes lives by helping individuals of all ages with diabetes overcome challenges and fears.  Children with Type 1 Diabetes have a special place in my heart and iD has a number of amazing programs that help mentor and inspire kids living with this terrible disease.

This will be my 3rd Ragnar Relay with iD.  The previous 2 races were incredible learning experiences and have provided me with friendships and a life-long support group.  By supporting me, you will also provide the opportunity for others to have this same experience and to live life to its fullest despite living with diabetes.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help support me and Insulindependence.

My teammates and I are each required to raise $800, so ANYTHING you can give would be tremendously appreciated.
