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

Charity Registration No. 295716


On September 30th 2011, my son, George, aged six months, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He was one of the sickest children to ever leave intensive care. Six years to the day of his diagnosis, I will be running 100k to raise 100k for JDRF, helping to fund research for a cure for this relentless condition.

Please watch this film of George's story.

Every donation made goes right to the heart of my family. Thank you so much to anyone for giving.

Come and join us. If your company would like to get involved and own part of this run we will be separating the event by gate. You and your colleagues can run with Simon and be part of ending this condition. Please contact Harriet Troddan
