My Story

In early 2016, our son Gabriel was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). This is a lifelong autoimmune disease that destroys the ability to produce insulin, a hormone which is vital for life. Having T1D means that Gabriel has to have multiple insulin injections and finger prick tests each day to make sure his blood sugars are kept under control. There is currently no way to prevent or cure T1D but with your help, we are aiming to change that.

As part of completing the Coast to Coast 243km multisport event in New Zealand we are raising funds to support JDRF Australia on its mission to find breakthroughs to cure, treat and prevent Type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Your kind donation will go towards the search for a cure for T1D. Please help me by spreading the word and sharing my page with your friends and family. Let’s turn Type One into Type None.

Team Mudwalkers has been together for over 7 years, regularly taking part in endurance and obstacle events. On Feb 10, we're taking on our greatest challenge, a 243 km run/cycle/kayak from the west coast to the east coast of the South Island, NZ known as the famous Coast to Coast. If you think that's tough, it's nothing compared to the challenges faced by people with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).

T1D is a life-long autoimmune disease that affects over 120,000 people in Australia. John's 10 year old son Gabriel, is one of those people. Having T1D requires constant monitoring of blood glucose levels and insulin therapy. The cause of T1D is not known and there is currently no cure.

Well, we want to turn Type One into Type None. We are supporting JDRF Australia in its mission to find a cure for T1D. Your kind donation will contribute to research that will make a difference to the lives of those living with T1D. 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. Thank you.
