With over 30 years of living with Type 1 I'm always keen to show that we are capable of achieving whatever we set our minds to. This seemed the perfect way to celebrate 100 years of insulin.
From 1 December:
100 days of cycling
100 metres of elevation per day
100 minutes of exercise per day
100 climbs up Portsdown Hill within the final 48 hours
I'm taking on the 100 Challenge for JDRF, the charity that funds research to treat, prevent and cure type 1 diabetes.
This condition affects 400,000 people in the UK, with over 29,000 of them children. Incidence is increasing by about four per cent each year and particularly in children under five, with a five per cent increase each year in this age group over the last 20 years. JDRF aims to create a world without type 1 diabetes. Until that day, your support is vital to help fund world-class research, improving treatments until JDRF finds the cure.
Please support me and JDRF by sponsoring my JDRF 100 Challenge.
