The JDRF One Walk is returning to Davistown. The walk is an enduring initiative of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), with walks taking place across the globe to raise vital funding for life-changing type 1 diabetes research.

The Central Coast One Walk will take place at Davistown waterfront, from 11 am, on Sunday, September 23.

The walk itself will take place along the Davistown waterfront footpath and is completely dog, pram and wheelchair friendly. The 6km walk will see participants travel from Davistown to Kincumber. Long-time Central Coast JDRF One Walk Coordinator, Margaret Sheridan, is again lending her expertise to the event and is encouraging all Coasties to get involved in the 2018 walk. “It is going to be huge this year,” Margaret said. “It is my final year of totally organising the walk.

“Over the last five years, the Coast has raised approximately $100,000 for the JDRF. I’m hoping we will do better than ever this year,” she said.

There will also be a range of activities in the Davistown Progress Hall before and after the walk. Prior to the event, a barbecue, tea, coffee, face painting, market stalls and a variety of other goodies will be available from 10 am. “We have special guests from our local, state and federal governments, with Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, officially opening the walk,” Margaret said. The event will culminate in a raffle, which Margaret said was one of the biggest and best raffles the walk has had in years.
