Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is dedicated to funding research to find the cure for type 1 (juvenile) diabetes, which strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin-dependent for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications.

With the aim of giving our entrants the best race of their year, we are already well ahead with our plans for the Brighton Marathon 2013 taking place on Sunday 14th April. Entries for next April's race are going very fast; the 2000 discounted early bird entries sold within one hour on launch day (Tuesday 17th April) and since then almost half of the additional public places available have been sold.

I will soon be running the Brighton Marathon and for very personal reasons have decided to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Type 1 Diabetes is a complicated condition which requires constant medication, typically resulting in 4 injections and several blood tests ... every day ... for life.
The impact of this routine and need for constant supervision has a large impact on the lives of the sufferers and their families.
The aim of JDRF is to conduct research to find improved treatments to enhance the lives of those with Type 1 Diabetes and hopefully one day to find a more permanent solution.
I am grateful for whatever you can spare - it is a great cause - but equally your support and best wishes would be well received. This time I have no specific target to reach.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
