Event details and schedule

My father is the motivation for this charity race event. He suffered with Diabetes for over 30 years. He was on dialysis for 8 years. He succumbed to the disease on April 16, 2012. Diabetes slowly deteriorates the body affecting the kidneys and eventually the heart. Much research needs to be conducted in order to better understand the disease.
