Tim Chandler

Type 1 Challenge 2021

My Story

I’m cycling 1000km over 6 days in the 2021 Type 1 Challenge to turn type one into type none!

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that can strike at any time. It affects more than 120,000 Australian families, and 7 people are diagnosed every day.Β  It's a cause with real meaning to our family.

So I’m fundraising for JDRF on the #type1challenge to raise funds for research to cure, prevent and better treat type 1 diabetes.

Please DONATE NOW and support my ride to change the lives of Australians living with T1D.

Thank you!

PS One of my kid's favourite jokes is:

Q: What do you get when you cross a dinosaur and a bike?

A: A mega-sore-arse!

Frankly I take offence to them calling me a dinosaur, but the reality is the tenderness of my behind after 6 grueling days on the bike is a minor inconvenience compared to living with T1D.Β  So whether you like our jokes or not, please donate and help me make a difference!

Thank you to my Sponsors
