It's Walk Time!

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes events are now underway across Australia!

Many of my friends and fellow T1D families have taken part in events in their local areas - it has been great to hear about how much fun they have all had and the new people they have met in their local T1D communities.

This week the 2 kids and I will walk in the Sydney Twilight JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes on Thursday 27 October.

We will also be volunteering in our roles as Peer Support Volunteer (me) and Youth Advocate (the kids) at the Parramatta walk on 30 October and possibly the Newcastle walk on 14 November.

We are all really looking forward to this year's Walk, and if you're there at the Sydney walk - look out for us! We'll be fairly visible in PURPLE t-shirts with our "2 SWEET" team logo!

Today I came across this video made by the JDRF. It features Nick Jonas who is the US National Chairman for the Walk to Cure Diabetes.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video and find out how YOU can help us to find a CURE for Type 1 Diabetes in your local area.

You can start with making a DONATION to either Isabella or Tim via their own Walk to Cure Diabetes donation pages.

And also, if you are attending a Walk to Cure Diabetes anywhere in Australia keep an eye out for members of the Parents of Aussie Kids with Type 1 Diabetes Support Network - who may be wearing this sticker:

Hope to see you there!
