My story

[p]I will be running a marathon for the first time at 51 years of age (after being 'egged' on by my eldest son, Max!) [/p][p]But that is not the real reason for taking part and raising money for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).[/p][p]At 3 years of age our son Lewis was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and now at 14, he is managing his condition unbelievably well. Over the years he has managed injections up to 5+ times a day, blood testing every few hours and now connecting his pump cannula and glucose monitoring sensor every couple of days and at the same time managing his diet alongside the highs and lows of blood variations.[/p][p]He has been lucky enough to benefit from the improvements in technology relating to the management of Type 1 Diabetes that keeps him healthy and it is organisations like JDRF that make it possible.[/p][p][i]"JDRF fund research to cure, treat and prevent Type 1 Diabetes. Working with government, academia and industry to accelerate research in the UK. Offering support and a voice to people with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. Working hard to create a world without Diabetes."[/i][/p][p]So please support me (and JDRF) and to help make Type 1 Diabetes something that other children and adults don't have to go through.[/p][p]So back to me...... I am determined to put my all into running a successful marathon. Hopefully, getting fitter in the process and raising awareness and funds for a charity close to our heart.[/p][p]Lewis' brother, Max has also managed to secure a place in the ballot so we will be running together (not racing at all!)[/p][p]Steve[/p]
