The Great Diabetes Swim

My name is Marian Cardwell and I just swam twice across the length of Torch Lake, Michigan, to benefit type 1 diabetes research. The swim totaled 18 hours of continuous swimming, covering 35.6 miles. I would love your support! Let's help find a cure for all of those #Type1Tough people out there!

NOTE: "Cellmates on the Run Foundation" is the GoFundMe name for the CDP!

More on the CDP: The CDP is working to make islet cell transplantation a viable treatment option for diabetes. The CDP is a global collaboration of scientists, researchers, physicians and surgeons with one mission: cure diabetes.
