Hey guys,
Being a Type 1 Diabetic is a challenge. Running 42.195km is also a challenge. But what is life without challenges?
On July 1st I am going to tackle the Gold Coast marathon. My personal purpose? To raise awareness about what can really be done with Type 1. Sometimes this disease can be seem like a limitation, a reason not to do the things we love. It is important that we realise our own potential and prove to ourselves and others that we do not have to be defined by Diabetes or other illnesses. We are all in fact strong and resilient and can do whatever we put our minds to.
With that in mind, I will be running the marathon for the Type1 Foundation, an amazing cause and one that is so important to the families effected by Type 1 Diabetes. This is a not-for-profit group with the aim to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes through education in schools, medical practices and the Community and provide support and connect families living with this chronic illness. Its core purpose is to advocate for the care of children living with Type 1 Diabetes in schools.
Please help me to support this wonderful charity.

Fundraising for
Type1 Foundation
The Type1 Foundation was founded in June 2015 by two passionate and dedicated parents Ange and Leif McCaughley. The Type1 Foundation is based in Geelong and was created in response to a gap in understanding and lack of awareness around Type 1 Diabetes after their daughter Lila was diagnosed a year earlier at age 9. The primary aim of the foundation is to create a generation of young people with Type 1 Diabetes who understand, accept and therefore properly manage their condition responsibly.
