Type 1 Challenge

The Last Ride... I promise! I can not keep doing this

My beautiful daughter Paige was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on the 7th of January October 2014. In this short she has had 2000 plus injections and over 7000 blood test. Most people would complain, but Paige has never. My concerns are not administering insulin or doing the bloods tests throughout the night. It is the complications that Type 1 diabetes has on your health later in life.

A person with Type 1 can suffer the following conditions with the constant fluctuations in blood glucose

Loss of eye sight

Kidney failure

Strokes and heart disease

loss of limbs

Complication with child birth and fertility.

I am driven to find a cure for Type 1 so that Paige and the other 120,000 kids can live a long and happy lives.

This year I am pushing myself harder by participating in a circumnavigation of Victoria in the hope to raise much need dollars to find a cure of Type1 and other autoimmune diseases.


Thank you to my Sponsors
