November is the official month of awareness for Diabetes and we have a number of fundraising activities going on around the country. It is not too late to get involved! Check out some of the initiatives below.
Firstly our team of 22 runners are participating in the Queenstown Marathon. This includes a number of our Type 1 children and their siblings - check out the video below to see their progress and if you want you can make a donation at http://bit.ly/2ztUKxW
Also as part of this project we are hosting a Marquee at the Sports expo in Queenstown on the 16th and 17th. We are having lucky dips, and auctions from a number of items that have been donated. Keep an eye on our facebook page for some great deals for you to bid on! And if you know of anyone who would like to donate - from as little as a coffee voucher, to as big as a helicopter ride, please contact Megan firstname.lastname@example.org or Simone email@example.com
Stall at your local business
A few of our volunteers have approached businesses to see if they can hold a stall and collect funds while running raffles and distributing flyers about our research. If you would like help organising this call the office on 03 479 5858. Games are always a great attraction at these events.
