The Glucose Gang

Thank You!

We are absolutely blown away with the generosity of our family, friends and colleagues. We will honour your donations by doing our very best throughout October!!!

Our Progress...

If you click on our names, you will see our individual progress. Here is an up to date tally:

Alexis:       100 km
Matt:       59 km
Direshni:       86 km
Ashley:       109 km
Team Total:       354 km

On the 21st day we are still on track to achieve our goals. 100 km should be fine - maybe 150 km for some of us???

The Bennett Family

We are a family of 4 living in Perth, Western Australia. The youngest of our crew was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes earlier this year.

We're doing the JDRF One Walk Step Challenge to defeat T1D!

That means we'll each be walking/running 100 kilometres in October to acknowledge 100 years since the ground-breaking discovery of insulin.
