Marathon Monday

18 04 2011

The 115th Boston Marathon is winding to a close. 7 of the top 15 men are from a country abbreviated as “KEN” (nothing to do with me though). Ryan Hall, the only American in the top 15 finished fourth in 2:04:58.

What now? Get ready for next year.
Broken Pancreas is planning on putting a charity team in the 2012 Boston Marathon.
Will you be running with us or will you be cheering?


Liam – Rock Climbing

29 01 2011

Liam has had diabetes a mere 4 months and at 7 has been rock climbing for 2 years.

He and his family decided they wanted to do something to raise money for diabetes research so they and Rock Spot Climbing (in Lincoln, RI) hosted – Send For A Cure. The event raised over $6000 to fund JDRF’s search for the cure.

Liam is a real inspiration. When I’m down on diabetes, I realize there are kids like him scaling walls!

22 years.

This is Joe. He is a 72 year old ex-marine and says, “I am the Number One Diabetic.” When scrubbing the dirt off a dozen canoes wasn’t enough, Joe took a dip in the lake.
