Virtual 5k for Diabetes


There are several of what I call “Girl’s Guide Angels” out there.  You know, people who support my blogging and advocacy efforts and provide cheering and encouragement.  One of those people is Reyna, a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes.  I read her blog because she has an uncanny ability to turn her family’s unique life with diabetes into some of the most uplifting and hysterical stuff I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.  So when I noticed last week that marathon running Reyna and her ultra marathon running sister (ultra-yes I didn’t know there was such a thing and yes, it blows the mind) started a fundraising event to raise money for diabetes, I said, “I’m SO in”. 

Go here for all the details.  If you’re like me and welcome any extra incentive out there to exercise, then say hello to this great one.  It’s lovely to do something like this and feel solidarity with all of the other people gearing up to do the same.  Not only is this for our cause, but walking or running a 5k is also a gift to our wellbeing which is more immediate than a cure-and that is a wonderful thing.  So forgive the cheesiness from yours truly and click over here to donate just $10 to the JDRF and register for the 5k. 

And in the case you’re on the fence and ever wanted to show your appreciation for this blog, you could participate in this Virtual 5k? Hehe.

As always, thanks for reading!

    Can I just say…YOU.ARE.THE.BEST!!! Thank you Sysy for your support and spreading the word. No one can quit “diabetes”. Therefore, I won’t quit on advocacy and raising funds. xoxo
