  • Help Me Ride to Cure Diabetes

    G’day everyone!

    I'm writing to ask for your support.
    Help support the search for a Diabetes cure by supporting me on my 160km ride in the Barossa Valley in South Australia, my aim is to raise $10,000...

    I believe that we need to find a cure for the 140,000 Australian children and adults living with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes.

    Why should you support me?
    · In Australia, there are around 5 new cases of type 1 diabetes diagnosed every day and the incidence is increasing.
    · Unlike type 2 diabetes, type 1 has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and cannot be prevented.
    · The long-term complications of the disease can include blindness, heart disease, kidney failure, and even amputation.
    · People with type 1 diabetes need up to six insulin injections every day, just to stay alive.
    · Insulin is not a cure for type 1 diabetes – currently there is no cure. That's why I am Riding. Your donation will fund vital research, which will one day find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

    Visit my personal Ride website to make a donation or for more information:
    JDRF - Ride to Cure Diabetes

    Thank you for your support.

    P.S. When you donate you will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible donation via email.

      Good on you mate, seems a fairly large undertaking to get there etc even if the ride itself isn't that huge.

      A cause worth supporting.

      I am a miserly prick, but I'll donate if you ride to the meet point as well... :o

              Its a push bike ride, over 160km in the Barossa Valley in South Australia.
              From what im told, itll be very hot, and the terrain is very hilly.

                thought so, a 160km motorbike ride seemed pretty slack :p
