The fourth annual Central Coast JDRF One Walk will take place at the Davistown waterfront near the Progress Hall, on Sunday September 11.
The Walk raises funds for research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and is an annual, national event. Over the past three years the Central Coast has managed to raise approximately $60,000 through the annual Walks. 2016’s Walk is set to be a family fun day out with exciting new entertainment and raffle prizes. New things happening on the day include market stalls, a jazz band, Tempo Terrific, appearance by the Viva la Vintage Pin-up Girls with photo shoots available, fun things for the kids, Star 104.5, and, Archery Tag.
Event organiser, Ms Margaret Sheridan, who lives with Type 1 Diabetes herself, said she knew first hand how much the Walk meant to people living with diabetes. “I know what it is like to live with such an insidious disease. “It is a daily battle to live 100 per cent normally. “There are so many ups and downs, which is why I want this year’s Walk to be the most successful Coast Walk ever,” she said. 2016’s walk is a 6km waterfront pathway walk from Davistown Ferry Wharf to Kincumber and back. The walk is dog, pram and wheelchair friendly.
