Warrior Kathryn

I have known Kathryn since I was 15. She is probably the smartest person you will ever meet. I think she knows five languages, maybe more...including Russian. She is a grammar expert. She also has Type 1 diabetes for almost 29 years. Recently she was diagnosed with Gastroparesis. Basically, her stomach is paralyzed. As a result she is on a liquid only diet. It is hard enough balancing nutrition with diabetes, but think of how hard it must be to only consume liquids.

This has not stopped Kathryn. She continues to ride her bike in support of charitable causes including Team in Training and the American Diabetes Association. On Sunday Kathryn has a goal to ride 100 miles for Tour de Cure on Team Red. She is only $25.00 away from her goal. We are all proud of Kathryn. No matter what obstacles she may face, she has never let that stop her from doing the things that are important to her. GO KATHRYN!
