America's Walk for Diabetes

Zippy and I will be walking in the America's Walk for Diabetes fund-raising event to benefit the American Diabetes Association on October 22nd. I am taking part in this event because I believe in and support the Association's mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

For those who do not know, Zippy has had Type 1 diabetes for over 35 years - she has not had serious complications because she takes pretty good care of herself, and she works with the really wonderful folks at the Joslin Diabete's Center in New Britain. I am completely in awe of this program - the education, support in terms of nutrition, mental health, physical health.

No pressure, but if you have a few bucks to toss at a good cause, we'll appreciate it!

More information on the American Diabetes Association, its programs and diabetes in general can be found at the Association's Web site: www.diabetes.org
