100 miles run before 14 November

Physical Activity Start Date: September 14, 2021
End Date: November 14, 2021
Location: London, England, United Kingdom

Hi Everyone, I'm raising money for T1 International, a Type 1 Diabetes charity, by running 100 miles before World Diabetes Day on Sunday 14th November.

Insulin gives life to my 10 year old daughter, Cece, every single day. She is one of 30,000 children with type 1 diabetes in the UK, and we had no idea that when she got sick for no reason at all, it was Diabetes. (We now know the 4 T's - Thirsty, Tired, Thin, Toilet)

2021 also marks 100 years since insulin was first purified in a laboratory and given to Leonard Thompson, a 14 year old who lay dying in Toronto General Hospital. The patent was sold to the hospital for $1, by Banting, Best and Collip, as they wanted anyone who needed access to the drug to have it.

T1 support #insulin4all, a campaign for global access to insulin for all Type 1 diabetics.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
