I'm walking 100km to turn type one into type none!
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.

You are that kid in school who got the most donations for the walkathon 🤬 #bigfishfriendswithrichkids
It was scary when you were little. I am sorry that it is still so difficult. I am so pleased you are so pragmatic about how you deal with this. We know so little about disabilities, T1D included. Congratulations

Go for it, legend! Much love from afar from an old friend of your Mum's. (Not too weird, I hope.)
Remember that school trip to Canberra? We made you sleep on the couch so your mother wouldn’t wake us up, hope this can make up for that.
