About the walk

This year JDRF is partnering with an international sporting personality, Sir Ian Botham, who has a child with T1D and is visiting Australia for the Ashes series.
This gives JDRF an opportunity to raise additional awareness for T1D including our first ever advertisement for the One Walk to be played on Channel Nine during July and October.
To take up this opportunity we have refreshed the Brisbane event with a new date and time and look forward to Sir Ian Botham opening the event and meeting our supporters.

Throughout the day the following activities will be run:

  • Children’s activities such as colouring in and face painting
  • Sporting activities suitable for kids and young adults
  • JDRF research information shared in the JDRF Marquee
  • Trade stands with information from medical device companies and diabetes related information
  • T-shirt competition and other games such as tug-o-war
  • Music throughout the day
  • Snap chat filter and social media check in points
  • Food stalls such as sausage sizzle, coffee and ice cream
