Running a marathon, whether it is your 1st or 50th, is magnified when you run for a cause.  With Team Cellmates on the Run, you will be given the tools necessary to run your best, fundraise with ease, and even meet the patients who have been helped by the dollars you have raised.  Imagine crossing the finish line knowing you have made a difference, not to just one person suffering from diabetes, but to their entire network of family and friends. Make this the year you choose to OUTRUN DIABETES!

The Broad Family, of Beverly, starred at the recent Chicago Marathon, which was held Oct. 10. Joe Broad (15649) completed his eighth marathon, finishing the 26.2-mile race in 5:11.41, just ahead of his son, Sam (5:11.42). Joe’s daughter, Allison, ran the marathon in 3:45:42. Joe Broad is diabetic and was diagnosed with colon cancer in August 2020, but he vowed to train to run in the 2021 Chicago Marathon. He raised funds for the Chicago Diabetes Project (CDP). Also enjoying the event is CDP Director Dr. Jose Oberholzer.
