2014 Ride to Cure Diabetes - 18th Jan

Postby BigBadWOLF » Mon Jan 06, 2014 9:06 am

Just a heads up for those around the Barossa Valley on the 18th of January to keep an eye our give us a cheer.

I have registered for the 2014 Ride to Cure Diabetes, an incredible event that makes a million dollar impact on type 1 diabetes research.

Type 1 Diabetes has been part of our lives for the last 6 years with my amazingly strong wife being diagnosed in 2006, I have seen her living with this on a daily basis having been through 2 pregnancies and now with 2 beautiful girls.

I hope to help raise awareness but mostly dollars to help assist in the research that will one day make her like along with the other 122,300 Aussies affected by Type 1 diabetes

Incentives to Donate apart from the obvious

At each milestone I will pledge the following

$1000 Bleach blonde my afro for the ride ( Check)

$2000 Shave legs for the ride

$3000 Wax legs for the ride (Ouch)

Goal of $3500 Wax Legs, Arms, Chest and Under Arms (Super Ouch)

For a single donation of $1500 I will shave the Afro
(Mrs does not like this idea but hey its for a good cause)


In the last 40 years JDRF have been behind every major advance in type 1 diabetes research. Research not only focuses on finding a cure for type 1 diabetes, but also looks at ways to combat the complications and the environmental factors that may cause or trigger this disease. What we do know is, that going on a diet or cutting down on sugar doesn’t stop type 1 diabetes.

A disease that usually arises in childhood and lasts a lifetime because it destroys the ability to produce insulin, which is vital for life. There is no cure - yet.

Your support of the Ride to Cure Diabetes will help JDRF make a million dollar impact on Australian medical research into type 1 diabetes.

This year, I have chosen to do the 160km course. Please support my commitment to improving the lives of those who live with type 1 diabetes and donate today.

Your donation will automatically generate a tax receipt.
