Training for Team Harvey

Well, we have gone from a few casual walks around the neighbourhood with the dog each week to at least 5 walks a week each, at least three kilometres each walk.  Our dog Molly is loving it!  We found the commitment a bit difficult at first but it's getting easier.  With just two days to go it's just as well!  We have been astonished and so so grateful at the amount of money our friends and family have donated.  It makes every step that bit lighter.  And not just the steps around the neighbourhood.  Harvey is newly diagnosed and the steps our family is taking towards our new normal also have a bit of spring in them when we think of the support we have.  

My Story

We are 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? Because our beautiful 6 year old grandson Harvey has recently been diagnosed with T1D and we are coming to understand the many critical decisions that have to be made every single day and every single night to keep him safe, well and happy.  We need to help to find a cure to one day prevent other families going through this heartbreaking challenge.

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.
