The walk is a great event for all ages and is an event for everyone. As I say everyone has a connection to diabetes. If you don't have diabetes that doesn't mean that you can't attend, come to the walk to learn about the disease and how it affects everyone. We have a disease that is not totally understood by many and the walk is a way for diabetics to show that we may have a terminal illness but at the end of the day we are the as everyone else. The walk offers inspiring stories, activities for children, a live DJ and a lot of fun contests.
Personally the Boston walk holds a special place in my heart. Last year Leanne and I met a person by the name of Jamin Reda. Jamin is the chair of the Boston walk, Jamins life is diabetes. He does all that he can each and everyday to make life for people living with diabetes a little bit easier. I'm thankful that I got to meet Jamin at the walk, if I had not met Jamin I honestly don't think I would be where I am today. He is the one who kicks me in the butt and tells me to keep fighting. The walk is about meeting people like Jamin, you could be walking the route and meet someone that changes your life. I encourage anyone that is in the area to stop by and enjoy the day.
