YP Community: Walk for a World Without Type 1 Diabetes
Over 120,000 Australian are living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) everyday, with more than 2,000 people diagnosed each year.
The life-long autoimmune disease is manageable, but there is no cure.
JDRF is an organisation that wants to change this, and runs an annual JDRF One Walk event to raise funds and show support for people with T1D living in our communities.
This year, JDRF's One Walk is coming to Flow region Moonta along SA's Yorke Peninsula.
Anita spoke to Tamara from JDRF on the Country Viewpoint to find out more.
Moonta's JDRF One Walk event will begin at Queen Square on Sunday October 22, open from 9am for check-in and registration, with the walk kicking off from 10.30am at the Port Hughes Jetty.
A free shuttle bus to Port Hughes will be running from 9.50am.
