Hi! I'm Em (aka @emilysdiabetes)- a 22 year old student who's been living with type 1 diabetes for 21 years. Me and Liam, my partner of 4 years, will be running the TCS New York Marathon on the 3rd of November to raise money for JDRF. Although Liam isn't diabetic, he has always been my biggest supporter and I'm so thankful he is willing to support me and all my fellow diabetics by running to raise money too. We're both very active people, this is our first ever marathon, so it will be a huge challenge for us to prepare for!
We want to support JDRF because they accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications. There is currently no cure, and no way of preventing T1D, which is why we want to take action.
Six Australians every day receive the life-changing news that they have type 1 diabetes, most of them children.
Your kind donation ensures that we can provide the best research outcomes for the T1D community in Australia. The more people that know about JDRF, the greater the impact, so please help us by spreading the word and sharing our page with your friends and family. Let’s turn Type One into Type None.
