Running The Boston Marathon With Type 1 DiabetesThe Diabetes Site
Laura Takach was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6 but has always found running to be a passion. An activity some assume diabetics should not tango with, Laura feels by running she proves to herself that she can keep her diabetes in control and it won’t stop her from doing what she strives to do.
Watch as this avid diabetic runner takes her passion up a notch with a goal to run the Boston Marathon. Running on behalf of JDRF, Laura will be raising money to help find a cure and hopefully prevent other children from having to grow up with a type 1 diabetes diagnosis like herself.
