I'm walking for a world without type one diabetes

Denzels Story

Hey Buds,

 

Most of you know my story when it comes to diabetes and fundraising as this is now my 8th JDRF walk. I have a very personal connection to Type One, being diagnosed when I was six and having two sisters and other family members being diagnosed also. As well as being involved with JDRF for approximately 9 years, I have been associated with Diabetes Tasmania for over a decade. The amazing people, both Type One or those who work with us, I have met over the years constantly provide me with the motivation to get out and fundraise or volunteer wherever I can. JDRF are the world leader in findifu research that can and will help the lives of so many incredible diabetics that this year I again will be pulling on the walking boots to try and raise as much as I can.

 

What started as me walking from Devonport to Burnie and raising $750 has so far resulted in me (and some amazing friends) walking the entire northern coastline of Tasmania, climbing 9 mountains and raising over $22,000. So I got to thinking, where now? I can't go any further east or west. So now I'm going south. The Tasmanian Trail runs 480km from Devonport to Dover and this year I hope to get the Devonport to Deloraine leg out of the way, over two nights.

 

I am astutely aware that my fundraising walks are made possible and successful by the generosity of some repeat offenders; family and friends who donate time and time again as well as those who help out logistically or walk with me. Not to forget those who amazingly offer support from their own small businesses. I feel guilty every year asking for people to continue to help and support these walks, but when I think of how much the money can help JDRF better the lives of so many of us, I swallow my pride and ask yet again. I am optimistically aiming for $5000 again, and if you could throw me even the small change behind the couch you will receive in return my eternal gratitude, stupid selfies of me on my walk and, of course, choc chip bikkies*
