I think it is important to take the time to recap on the cause that we are donating to on race day.

Lakewood Hospital holds a special place in my heart, because their nurses have given me a lot of support since my diagnosis. They are both encouraging and motivating. When the opportunity came up to donate money on behalf of Lakewood hospital to patients who have a difficult time paying for their diabetic treatment, I was happy to help. I try to imagine what my life would be like if I didn't have the means to control my diabetes. My life would certainly be shortened due to the medical issues that occur with uncontrolled blood sugars. I also think of Lakewood Hospital, and how different my life would be without their continued guidance and support. If this cause means something to you as well, I encourage you to donate.

Thank you for reading and for being a part of this journey.

Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
