Help youth living with type 1 diabetes live the life they deserve

$6,332 of $5,000 goal
Given by 68 generous donors in 11 weeks

Fundraising for Diabetes NZ

Queenstown, Otago

Imagine having to pick your childs finger 8-10 times a day. This is the case for youth living with type 1 diabetes unless they can afford a Continuos Glucose Monitor (CGM). Unfortunately these are not funded yet and with them costing $100 a fortnight are out of reach financially for a lot of families. With a CGM, finger pricks are reduced dramatically and levels can be monitored by a smartphone or watch. This creates piece of mind for parents as they can see when the child is going high or low without having to finger prick to check.

On May 14 -15th I am going to be running 5km every hour for 24hours.

Lets see if we can raise enough to fund 50 CGM's!

As a type 1 mum I know every child in New Zealand should have this technology funded! Thanks for doing your bit for all the people living with type 1 in NZ, awesome effort :)
