Discovery One Walk

We're stronger together

I’m taking part in Discovery One Walk to help raise money to fund life-changing research and make a difference to the lives of people affected by type 1!

400,000+ people are currently living with type 1 diabetes in the UK, and with your support and your generous donations, we can fund JDRF UK’s important work towards finding a cure. Here are just a few examples of what your money can do...

Every £10 could help run a research laboratory for 10 minutes - bringing us 10 minutes closer to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Every £25 could pay for an hour of research nurse support for someone involved in a clinical trial, which could ultimately lead to the next big breakthrough. Without this support, there would be no trial.

Every £50 could enable a scientist to use lasers for two hours, allowing them to study the immune cells at the heart of type 1, monitoring the success of clinical trials and further improving knowledge into type 1.

Thank you for your support, whatever you donate is really appreciated. Together, we can help JDRF to eradicate type 1 diabetes!

reaching my Target

Wednesday 17th Apr
Hello everyone
we are beyond grateful for everyone that has sponsored Archie so far, its so heart warming to see so many lovely comments and have the support of everyone so far. As Archie reached his target within the first 24hours we have decided to increase the target to £1000, this would be amazing if this could be achieved.
Thanks again for all the love and support
please share with friends and family

lots of love

Hello

Friday 5th Apr
My name is Archie lewis I am 6- soon to be 7
Early this year I got diagnosed type 1 diabetic, this was a huge shock to me and my family and it’s something I have had to learn to live with, being diabetic is now part of me part of my every day life. I have to inject myself 4 times a day! I have to ensure my sugars are monitored throughout the day, if I go to low I can become unwell. I am doing this walk to raise money to help other people who are like me! I am not ashamed of being diabetic, I want people to know how serious being diabetic is, if we can show any awareness on our journey that would be great!  Any donations would be great! I’m really looking forward to this challenge! 
Lots of love 
Archie

Your son is rocking type 1 and this is a great step to help others. So many children are becoming diabetics, with no understanding why. I hope this next stage of your son’s journey helping others to understand makes him realise how much he has achieved in a hard journey, accepting how to manage and control his diabetes. Well done and thank you. I’m a type 2 metformin and it’s hard for me and I’m a 49. Thank you ☺️ keep going no matter how hard and look after yourself too.
