Walk Day for Team 2 Sweet!

Yesterday was JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes day for our family, and, by some miracle the rain held off once again!

The event we attended was the Sydney Harbour Twilight walk - and, as you can imagine, the spectacular scenery made for a very pleasant evening stroll and some lovely photos!

This year we were joined by family members and friends for the first time - everyone had a great time so we are hoping for Team 2 SWEET to be considerably larger next year!

This being our 2nd year doing the Walk we knew lots of people including other families who are part of our online support network as well as our lovely friends at the JDRF in Sydney.

We were also joined by a journalism student from UTS who contacted me earlier in the week to ask if we would be interested in participating in a video assignment about the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. 

The 2 Kids, along with other T1D kids, did their bit for the JDRF by providing some video footage to be used in JDRF marketing. Will be interesting to see if their contribution survives the cutting room - particularly given that BOTH kids had their faces painted with butterflies - yes, my 14 year old son included!

A special thanks to our lovely friend from Canada, Alex, who joined us for the Walk this year! Alex not only walked to support the 2 Kids, but also to support her mother who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes more than 20 years ago.

All in all - a lovely evening!
