I'm walking 100km to turn type one into type none!
Raising hopesThank you for all your very kind and generous donations so far reaching my goal of over $1000. I have now increased it and hopefully on the way to $2000. for this great cause.
I was struck down with type 1 Diabetes unexpectedly when I was 34. It was not inherited as there are no diabetics in our family. It is a daily self managed and very challenging condition and certainly has its ups and downs trying to keep the blood sugars balanced. It’s now been 37 years of daily multiple injections and testing and although the technical side of management has improved there has been no cure in site. With your help much needed further research can be undertaken.
I’m doing the JDRF One Walk Step Challenge to defeat T1D! That means I'll be walking 100KM in October to acknowledge 100 years since the ground-breaking discovery of insulin.
Why? To drive progress toward improving lives and defeating T1D, and change the lives of more than 125,000 Australians who battle this disease every day in the process.
Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 8 Australians will be diagnosed today. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy.
DONATE NOW to help the #JDRFBlueArmy and help create a world without T1D. Thank you.
