"I stand up against my bully, diabetes, but I do not and cannot do it alone. I want to thank each of you for raising funds and standing up against my bully with me. When you run in the P.F. Chang's Marathon I hope you might, for a just a moment, picture my face and know that you are my hero and I am truly grateful to each one of you." -McKenna Riall, living with type 1 diabetes
