We fund research into type 1 diabetes to find a cure for type 1 diabetes


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The challenge is to attempt to pull an anvil of about 120 kg to the top of Goatfell. Starting the second of May 2016. Goatfell is the highest mountain on the Isle of Arran. (874m) 

My daughter has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over a year ago. Living with diabetes is a struggle. This struggle is what the challenge represents. And through this challenge I want to raise money for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). So hopefully a cure will be found.
