This year my sister and I are running the HBF Half Marathon (yes we are crazy as we both also have a hockey game on the same day!!). I am raising money for Diabetes WA. There is a strong family history of Type 2 Diabetes in our family.
By working in healthcare for the last 13 years I have been exposed to Diabetes Types 1 &2 and have witnessed the devastating complications that can occur when it is not well managed. I am acutely aware of preventative strategies, such as improving diet and exercise and want to share this knowledge with others!
If you weren't aware, Diabetes WA has provides support for Western Australians living with, and affected by, diabetes. They run educational programs, training events and a helpline to assist people with diabetes to understand and manage their condition so they can live a full and healthy life with as few complications as possible.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give now' button. The more people that know about Diabetes WA, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
Wish me luck!!
