I lost my dad to a life long struggle with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). As a child I watched him battle through all the daily challenges that DM brings. After he passed I felt this overwhelming need to keep his memory alive. My Dream As an avid runner and thrill seeker, I wasn't completely surprised when the idea of running 15 Marathons in 2015 arrived.
As I began to wrap my mind around the logistics involved with 15 Marathons I realized my journey felt empty...what was my "Purpose"? Then it hit, What if I made this a fundraiser? I could use the money to create a scholarship in my father's name for a child who faced the very same challenges that he did. Having Diabetes would now mean a child would "RECEIVE" something wonderful...wouldn't that be a lovely change? Since that time I have continued to literally run around the world, taking on extreme fitness challenges and aiding in the fight against T1D, one mile at a time!
My promise is to continue to spread awareness and provide support for those living with Type 1 diabetes. Scholarship Info & How to Apply All money raised is used to fund the John A. Ulis Memorial "Run 2 End T1D" Scholarship.
