Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Our eldest son, David (Dave) passed away in August 2010 and we have set up an account to raise much needed funds to increase awareness and help for people diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us reach in excess of £60,000  in David's memory. We have had some amazing events with so much support and hope you have had some fun along the way.

Chris is an OUTLAW! He completed the Outlaw Ironman in Nottingham which involved a swim of 2.4 miles,a ride of 112 miles(with a puncture repair en-route) and a 26 mile run.Well done young man!

Thanks to everyone at Belbroughton Cricket Club for hosting the 3rd Sixes tournament on Sunday 20th August and to all those who donated prizes, baked cakes,bought raffle tickets and played some memorable cricket.

Thanks to everyone who cheered and all of the riders,including Chris, during the Birmingham Velo.

2018 has seen Chris complete a local event and a half Ironman in Majorca with a plan to complete a full Ironman in Amsterdam in September.As most of you know Chris had a horrid accident a month before the event but made a fantastic recovery to complete a half Ironman. 2019 sees Chris heading off to Boston to take part in their marathon.

Congratulations to Adam Ruhe who completed the Bolton Ironman event with donations to JDRF.

Keep on coming up with your great ideas and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Please remember David's smile.

Thank you John Lynda Chris and Michelle
